Dual Language and Immersion Programs

Bring a dual language or immersion program to your school. Provide students with authentic instruction from native speakers of Spanish or Mandarin.

Why add language immersion to your school? Bilingual learners benefit from:

  • Better academic performance
  • More career opportunities
  • Greater cultural awareness

Learning a new language also aids critical thinking and logic. Schools using our program report dual language students outperforming regular ed by 20-40%.

Add dual language or immersion as part of your Participate Schools program, or try it on its own. Our Partnerships team can help you decide.
