Our Lady of the Holy Rosary- St. Richard Catholic School is proud to be the first Catholic school in the state of Florida implementing a dual language curriculum.
We are excited to be working with Boston College’s Two Way Immersion Network for Catholic Schools. We will begin our dual language program with PK2, PK3, and PK4 during our 2015-2016 school year. In addition to implementing the program in our primary grades, our elementary and middle school students will be enhancing their bilingualism by receiving conversational Spanish, partaking in bilingual masses as well practicing their Spanish with their class mates and teachers on "Spanish Tuesdays."
Our two way immersion model will continue to grow with a grade level being added each year until the entire school is fully immersed in the program. Students will develop full academic bi- literacy in Spanish and English across all subjects. Two- Way Immersion prepares our children to be global citizens in a culturally diverse world.
