Summer Language Acquisition Academy

  • The Summer Language Acquisition Academy is for students who will enter kindergarten or first grade in the fall and are currently identified as Limited English Proficient and participating in the ESL program. We focus on acquiring language through thematic units and experiential learning. Students have the opportunity to practice listening, speaking, reading and writing every day. It is a language rich, low-pressure environment that allows students to explore and practice English. 

    In the summer of 2019, the Language Acquisition Academy will be held at Walnut Grove Elementary located at 2520 N. White Chapel Blvd. Classes will begin on June 11th and continue until July 24th. We do not have classes on Friday. We will have a break the week of July 1st when classes will not meet. Class begins promptly at 8:00 a.m. and dismissal is at 2:00 p.m. There is no transportation provided. 

    Registration forms will be sent to eligible students in mid-April. If you would like for your student to attend, you must register ahead of time. If you have any questions, you may email Monica Gattshall, ESL Coordinator.
