The Language Academy Magnet School: French or Spanish Immersion

Situated between San Diego’s College Area and Rolando neighborhoods, The Language Academy magnet school provides a unique opportunity to achieve literacy in English and a second language, either French or Spanish. Give your child the gift of a second language!

These award-winning and free language immersion programs prepare students to receive the California State Seal of Biliteracy upon high school graduation. Each program contains an enriching world curriculum for students in Kindergarten through 8th grade, while also fulfilling the California standards in all subject areas. Your child will gain knowledge and appreciation of the history and culture of the language they study, with an emphasis on the world-view of the languages spoken today.

Students can enter the school with no prior knowledge of the target language in both kindergarten and 1st grade. Don’t speak French or Spanish at home? No problem! The students receive all language education at school. 

To join our school for the 2024-2025 school year, apply through the Choice application program for either the French or Spanish program. Contact us to take a tour of the school.

Note: Students entering 2nd grade and above need to have a grade level understanding of both English and the target language. The student will need to read, write, and speak both English and French or Spanish at or near grade level. This is verified by a language assessment before final enrollment.
