About Us

Bonjour! !Buenos Días!

The Language Academy is a K-8 public school that offers students the unique opportunity to become biliterate in either Spanish and English or French and English.

As a magnet school in the San Diego Unified School District, the Language Academy is the only tuition-free school in San Diego that offers French immersion.

Centrally located near SDSU’s campus, the Language Academy attracts students from all over San Diego county. Students are expected to meet the California standards in all subject areas, but also gain knowledge and an appreciation of the history and global cultures of the language they study.

Why learn a second language?

There are multiple benefits to children learning a second language. The benefits of being bilingual include:

  • Higher I.Q.
  • Better memory
  • Improved language skills (reading, writing, larger vocabulary)
  • More sophisticated cognitive skills (increased perception, problem-solving, reasoning, critical- and higher-order thinking)
  • Improved math skills
  • Improved music skills
  • More university and job opportunities
  • Broader world view

This is reflected at Language Academy, where our diverse students perform higher than average on national test scores.
