Foreign Language Immersion

Children have the opportunity to enhance their cognitive skills and learn a second language through Académie Lafayette’s immersion program.

What is a foreign language immersion program?

Immersion is defined as a method of foreign language instruction in which the regular school curriculum is taught through the medium of the target language. At Académie Lafayette, that language is French. In other words, French is the vehicle for content instruction; it is not the subject of instruction. All subjects are taught in French with the exception of English Communication Arts.
