Dual Language Program
Catholic Partnership Schools offers a Dual Language Program to help students build proficiency in communications and academics in both English & Spanish. It is available to students starting Pre-K at the Dual Language Pre-K at St. Anthony's and expands into St. Joseph Pro-Cathedral School. Dual Language classrooms split instruction so that half is in English and the other half is in Spanish - following the 50:50 Dual Language Immersion Model.
"We want students to grow in their knowledge and appreciation of other cultures, to develop a deeper understanding of their own cultures, and to learn how to communicate effectively across global communities."
"Students' languages and cultures are validated, increasing their self-esteem, which has a positive impact in their academic and social development in both languages. The Dual Language Program fosters bilingualism, biliteracy, enhanced awareness of linguistic & cultural diversity, and high levels of academic achievement through instruction in two languages."
