Global Immersion Academy

Global Immersion Academy (Spanish Dual Language Experience)
Burke County Public Schools is happy to offer a dual language experience for students entering Kindergarten. The program is housed at Mountain View Elementary. However, any student from any district within Burke County can submit an application for this program.


In this video about the Global Immersion Academy at Mountain View Elementary School, principals, teachers and parents talk about how the program teaches students English and Spanish starting in kindergarten. The goals of the program are biliteracy, bilingualism, grade level academic achievement and cross cultural competence. Students in the Global Immersion Academy are taught the standard course of study in both English and Spanish and learn content while learning the two languages. The students spend 50 percent of their day in an all-English classroom and 50 percent of their day in an all-Spanish classroom.
