Heritage Language Program

About the Program

The Spanish Heritage Track has been created to help bilingual students expand their Spanish skills and knowledge of their cultural heritage in a rich, confidence-building environment. 

The mission of the program is to promote Spanish language development and maintenance in the target language. We believe that every heritage student has rich linguistic resources and cultural understandings that are welcome and nourished in the classroom context.
