Royal Legacy Christian Academy proudly provides the Cedar Valley’s only Early Total One-Way language immersion program. This is where students receive 100 percent of their daily academic instruction in Spanish. Beginning in third grade, students will receive some direct English instruction, adding more each year. From middle school through high school, students will receive about 50 percent of each language.
For the 2018-2019 school year, we began with a combined K-1 class. They will continue on next year together as 1st and 2nd graders, and we will add a new kindergarten or combination class for the 2019-2020 school year. We are excited to see the progress our students have made so far and look forward to seeing our kids work toward the threefold goal of dual language immersion education: cross-cultural competency, academic achievement and high proficiency in English and Spanish.
We are partnering with an organization called add.a.lingua. They have helped school
communities across the nation launch and sustain quality immersion programs. They provide
professional development, curriculum framework, and immersion-specific assessments. Click here to learn more about add.a.lingua.
