Dual-Language Immersion » Overview


Dual-Language Immersion Programs
In addition to our traditional English-track program, Frank D. Parent offers two Dual-Language Immersion options: the French Immersion Program and the Spanish Immersion Program.
Dual-Language Immersion, in which students receive education in both English and a Target Language (i.e., French or Spanish), allows children to learn in research-driven, innovative, and effective ways by immersing them in two languages and cultures.
At Frank D. Parent, Language Immersion begins in Kindergarten (and Transitional Kindergarten) with 90% of classroom instruction provided in the Target Language (i.e., French or Spanish), giving children the opportunity to learn a second language the same way we learn our native language–by living it! Scientific research on childhood development has demonstrated that early dual-language acquisition leads to facility in learning throughout life.
Group tour dates will be announced soon.
