bilingual learning in an international environment
Designed to support students in 1st through 3rd grade with no previous French or German language experience, INTL’s Passport Program is an intensive dual-language track that integrates new French or German language learners into our world-renowned bilingual inquiry-based program.
INTL requires no language experience for enrollment in preschool/pre-kindergarten and kindergarten. Additionally, new language learners have a window of opportunity to enroll in our Passport Program for younger elementary students (1st-3rd grades). The Passport Program allows dedicated and gifted 1st-3rd graders to take advantage of our outstanding International Baccalaureate bilingual education.
