Elementary Spanish Immersion Program

 
Oakland Christian School is proud to offer one of the first full Elementary Spanish Immersion programs in our area.  This program develops students to become bilingual, biliterate, and bicultural by grade 5.

 

 

Oakland Christian School partners with add.a.lingua, dual language curriculum experts to deliver a comprehensive language immersion program.  Classes are taught by professionally trained, Christian teachers in their native Spanish language.  Reading, math, science, social studies, and Bible are all taught in Spanish.  Since the content and skills are transferable between languages, students acquire the information, but in a second language.  In reading, students first learn to read in Spanish, like an early reader would, and those skills are transferable since the program is designed to teach the skills of phonetic awareness and vocabulary as well as comprehension.  A student’s first language, English, is learned through their home.

Since second laguage acquisition is best at an early age, students can enter this program in preschool or kindergarten.

We have developed relationships with other parents as well as the administration and staff, and we see Oakland Christian School as a community that lives open-handedly and truly locks arms with one another to serve inside and outside of school.
