The Global Language Academy at Sharon Springs (“GLASS”) is a new, international, multi-language extension program of Montessori Academy at Sharon Springs. As an educational institution, GLASS enrolls students from within and around the community for learners ages 6 and up.
As the only multi-language school in the area, GLASS is excited to finally bring an innovating education model to the region.
GLASS provides young minds with the opportunity to learn a second language and understand different cultures while growing in the era of globalization. Students attending a language track in GLASS will grow in their abilities to produce a specific language and are exposed to authentic materials that make their learning meaningful.
Glass facilitators are native, heritage or fluent speakers who teach the language in a natural way while also sharing the language culture. While learning a specific language, students will also be exposed to traditional songs, games, special holidays, and much more.
Global Language Academy at Sharon Springs started as a fun project to bring a new language to the internal school community; our students already are expose to Spanish as a second language; however, we recognize the importance and need to provide our young minds with enough tools for the future.
After assessing our community and researching about most used languages around the world we decided to offer the following languages:
ESL (English as a second language)
The program is offered on Saturdays from 9am to 11am and is available to anyone in the community.
