Korean Immersion Program
This program is the only Two-Way Korean Immersion Program in Virginia and is designed to encourage appreciation of the Korean language and culture. Students spend half a day in the Korean classroom where they learn math, science, and Korean culture. They spend the other half of their day learning language arts and social studies in English. The program began last year at the kindergarten level and expanded this year to include the first grade. Each year, another grade level will be added to the program so that by 2018 – 2019, there will be a Korean Immersion class at all grades kindergarten through sixth.
The Korean Immersion Program is open, primarily to students who live within the Colin Powell boundaries; however, a limited number of seats will be opened for pupil placement of students from neighboring FCPS schools. If you are interested in having your kindergarten, first grade or second grade child participate in the Two-Way Korean Immersion Program next year, please consider joining us at Colin Powell Elementary School on Monday, April 7th from 2:00 – 3:00 pm to learn more about the program. If you have questions regarding the program or the registration process, please contact Mrs. Apperson at (571) 522-6000 Monday through Friday from 9: 00 – 4:00 pm
