TWO WAY IMMERSION PROGRAM

Boston College TWIN-CS

As we shared with all of you, our school is transitioning to becoming a two-way Immersion school and we will be starting year 2 of our dual language program. The model that we are using is the Gomez & Gomez model. Research shows that bilteracy increases academic success and it is our goal to form students in the truth of Jesus Christ while preparing them to be future global leaders. Although your students are not part of the dual language classrooms, they do take part in experiencing school wide elements of the Gomez & Gomez model to increase biliteracy and mulitculturalism, such as language of the day and participation in a variety of Hispanic traditions.
