    What is a dual language immersion program? 
     
    At CSIA students learn in two languages: Spanish and English.  

    Dual language immersion includes native speakers of two different languages.  Its goal is to develop bilingualism/biliteracy, academic achievement and cross-cultural competencies for all students.   
     
    In order to achieve this goal at Columbus Spanish Immersion Academy the percentage of content taught in Spanish and English is different at each grade level.
