At this time, late-entry assessments are no longer being administered for the current school year. Please check back in May 2020 for details about signing up for a Dual Language/Immersion Late-Entry Assessment for the 2020-2021 school year. 

The overall goal of the World Languages & Language Immersion programs is to promote high academic achievement in literacy and proficiency in dual languages while enhancing the level of cultural awareness among students.

“Late Entry” means that a student is entering a specialized program at a non-entry grade level. Students entering 1st grade and higher are required to do a school-based assessment and apply for a Request for Transfer.

There are six World Languages elementary/middle schools in CMS that offer this unique opportunity:

  • Charlotte East Language Academy (Spanish)
  • Collinswood Language Academy (Spanish)
  • EE Waddell Language Academy (Chinese, Japanese, German, French)
  • Oaklawn Language Academy (Spanish)
  • Starmount Academy of Excellence (Spanish)
  • Huntingtowne Farms Elementary School (Spanish)

As a reminder, the late-entry assessment will only determine eligibility for a dual language/immersion program. It does not guarantee placement. Placement depends on whether there is space available in the program.
