ABSS Dual Language Immersion Program

What is Dual Language Immersion?

Dual Language Immersion is a unique opportunity for families who want their children to participate in the academic program while learning a second language. Spanish is more than a subject taught, instead the language is used during everyday instruction.

Participate Learning Preview

Participate Learning connects teachers and students through global education programs to foster human understanding. Since 1987, they have partnered with districts, like Alamance-Burlington Schools, to provide cultural competency that prepares students to contribute to the world community and compete in the global marketplace.

How do I get my student enrolled in the Dual Language Program?

There is an application process for families to complete for their rising Kindergarten student. This is in addition to the district kindergarten online enrollment process.

If you do not live within the school zone, you will need to complete the “Dual Language Out of School Zone Placement Request” and attach the request to the application.

The deadline for the application is March 23, 2023. A lottery will be used for placement of students in the Full Immersion or 50/50 Immersion classrooms. Students not enrolled after the lottery will be placed on the waiting list. Once students enter the program a commitment is made for the duration of the year unless extenuating circumstances prevents continued enrollment in the program.
