Dual Language Spanish Immersion

The Woodlands Christian Academy Dual Language Spanish Immersion Program

Fall 2023-2024

The Woodlands Christian Academy is pleased to announce the expansion of our Spanish Immersion Program for the 2023-2024 school year. We have added a 1st grade class in addition to our Kindergarten class that was introduced last school year. 

Woodlands Christian has partnered with addalingua, an organization that works with schools to provide a dual language immersion program that prepares students for academic and linguistic success in two languages.

What is Spanish Immersion?

  • A proven method of educating English-speaking students in an instructional setting that allows them to acquire a second language through full-day Spanish instruction in Reading, Writing, Math, and Science.
  • Spanish is taught naturally, through daily classroom activities that meet the educational standards set forth by the school.

The Research on Bilingual Education

  • Bilingual educations improves key elements of brain performance, particularly in the areas of right-brain/left-brain integration and executive function, which includes working memory, mental flexibility and self-control.
  • Students in language immersion programs demonstrate higher levels of resilience, perseverance, greater creativity in problem solving, and are more flexible and culturally sensitive.

Enrollment in the Program

  • Classes begin in early elementary, with an additional grade level added each year. For the 2023-2024 school year, Woodlands Christian will offer the Dual Language Spanish Immersion Program for Kindergarten and 1st grade students.
  • Students selected for the program must meet the school's admission standards.
