Our Dual Language Program

Aurora Charter School (ACS) is a dual language program, although unique to most dual language programs in Minnesota. ACS’s program is unique in that typical dual language programs in Minnesota are programs are composed of native English speakers learning a second language with the goal of bilingualism and biliteracy by the end of the program. ACS serves a population of primarily native or heritage Spanish speakers with the majority of parents being Spanish-speakers as well. The end goal of bilingualism and biliteracy are the same for both types of programs.

The Three Pillars of Dual Language Education / Los tres pilares de la educación en dos idiomas

Bilingualism and biliteracy
High academic achievement
sociocultural competence
