Spanish classes for children (Pre-K through 8th grades) and adults are held during the school year on Saturday mornings from 9am to 12pm at Claremont Immersion School in Arlington, VA. An independent evaluation led by the Center for Applied Linguistics (CAL) found our Spanish program to be one of the most affordable and highest quality in the Washington, DC region. More than 50% of our students receive financial assistance in the form of scholarships.

In 2013-14, our native Spanish speaking teachers taught more than 200 children and 50 adults. We are pleased to share that more than 95% of parents surveyed indicated satisfaction with course offerings, the quality of the classes, teachers, and responsiveness of management staff. Parents shared:

  • My children now know how to speak Spanish, a language I do not speak.
  • I like the fact that my children learned about different cultures.
  • Escuela Bolivia allowed my child to develop their native language skills while improving academics.
  • We have been very pleased with this program and the parent participation has been important.

Adult classes offer comprehensive lessons to beginner and intermediate Spanish learners. Students learn conversational Spanish while working at their own pace in a small class setting. Lessons progress through different levels of fluency, offering students the opportunity to develop speaking and comprehension skills. Many parents take advantage of these courses to learn or improve their Spanish skills while their children are also in the program.
