At this time, late-entry assessments are only being administered to students who are new to CMS and have previous language experience through October 2019. 

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 Student Placement.

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)

All late-entry assessments will take place at Phillip O Berry Academy of Technology, 1430 Alleghany St., Charlotte, NC 28208. Remember that assessments can take over an hour, so please be prepared to wait in the car or lobby area while your child is testing.

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.
