Dual Language Exploration


What is Dual Language Exploration?

Our new Dual Language Exploration program offers you and your 4 year old child a great opportunity to try out and get a head start on our popular and successful Dual Language Immersion programs.

The Spanish Dual Language Exploration program experience is offered now at Chandler Traditional Academy - Liberty Campus.

The program will expand to CTA Freedom for the 2022-2023 school year, with registration starting in January 2021. To learn more about the Spanish Dual Language Exploration program at CTA Freedom, please attend their Open House at 6040 S. Joslyn Lane, Gilbert, AZ 85298 on November 30, 2021 from 5:30 - 6:30.

Why "Dual Language Exploration?"

The 2021-2022 school year introduced a new Dual Language Exploration program opportunity at two of our Dual Language Immersion elementary sites.

Students currently have the option to explore the language and culture of Mandarin Chinese at Tarwater Elementary, or Spanish at CTA Liberty (and soon at CTA Freedom) in addition to their core preschool subjects, which include literacy, mathematics, science, social studies, fine arts, physical education and more! Age-appropriate language resources will enhance the learning experience in this program of choice.
