SPANISH IMMERSION | INCREASINGLY INTERCONNECTED

It's no secret that our world is increasingly interconnected and that graduates with the ability to communicate in different languages and across cultures have a significant advantage in this globally competitive environment. That's why Metro Christian Academy is committed to a dual language immersion education as a way of teaching children promoting high academic achievement in English and Spanish.


Imagine your child having the ability to speak more than just one language!  Metro Christian Academy is the first Tulsa Christian school to offer a Spanish immersion learning track beginning in Pre-K.  Metro Christian Academy is pleased to offer its Spanish Immersion program for the 2020 – 2021 school year for grades PreK and Kindergarten. We are currently offering one section in each of these grades alongside our English program. Ultimately the Spanish immersion program will extend through Middle School, as we advance the program one grade per year.

WHY SPANISH IMMERSION?

At the forefront of Christian education, this innovative program is a proven method of educating children by immersing them in a second or “target” language, while embracing diversity and empathy for other languages and cultures. Students become bilingual by learning subject content in Spanish from a native and/or fluent Spanish-speaking instructor. We are partnering with the experts at add.a.lingua, a nationally recognized team of educators distinguished by their excellence in providing professional development and assistance implementing dual-language learning in Christian schools across the country.

 The Spanish immersion program’s goal is to produce bilingual, high academic achievers who are proficient in Spanish, and knowledgeable and appreciative of Spanish-speaking cultures.  Metro Christian Academy equips our students to serve and share Christ-like love with and from speakers of other languages. Click here to read more about Frequently Asked Questions.

SPANISH IMMERSION AT METRO

Our early, total one-way immersion program is considered dual-language immersion.  In the Spanish immersion sections, children are fully immersed in the Spanish language and become bilingual by learning the subject content in Spanish.  Specials, lunch, recess, Chapel, etc., remain in English. Beginning in 3rd grade, students begin receiving some English-specific instruction. 

 In the Fall of 2019, Metro successfully launched our Spanish Immersion Program. Click here for the Tulsa World Magazine article. We launched with a full class of PreK students and are committed to adding a grade every year through 5th grade.
