    Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools is proud to offer Spanish-English and Mandarin-English dual language programs that prepare students for the 21st century and offer them unique opportunities throughout their lives. Both programs are specially designed to develop students' language proficiency through core academic instruction. We recognize the need to ensure that our students are well-prepared to excel in a competitive, multilingual, multicultural and globalized world.
    • CHCCS Dual Language programs provide students with an opportunity to participate in an enriched educational model, which immerses them in two languages and two cultures from kindergarten through eighth grade.
    • In our dual language programs, students from different language backgrounds learn together while instruction is delivered in two languages. Students read, write, listen and speak in both languages becoming bilingual, biliterate, bicultural while working towards grade level academic achievement.
    • Dual language programs are ideal for any student. Young children have the ability to gain language faster with near native like language skills. Learning a language at a young age increases cognitive development, which allows for deeper levels of learning.
    • Students who join dual language programs will see incredible benefits throughout their lives. Knowing two languages allows for greater success in university language classes and employment opportunities. Additionally, language skills open the door to other countries, cultures and people.
