Our Approach

HoLa utilizes the well-established immersion approach to dual language education and incorporates a range of opportunities for creative expression and experiential learning.

Dual Language Education

Research consistently demonstrates that students in dual language classrooms thrive academically, excelling in measures of cognitive development, flexible thinking and problem solving, and outperforming their monolingual peers on standardized achievement tests.

HoLa’s curriculum reflects more than three decades of research in immersion education, integrates best practices of model dual language programs from across the country, and is designed to surpass state curriculum standards while providing the opportunity for students to become proficient in two languages. Through academic rigor, a whole-child approach, and a commitment to bilingualism/biliteracy, HoLa is preparing students to be full participants in the global community.

All families are welcome; no previous exposure to a second language needed! Charter schools are free public schools that are mission specific and operate independently of local school districts.
