Dual Immersion Program

At Phelan Language Academy, we offer the opportunity for students to learn in two languages. Beginning in TK and Kindergarten with a 90:10 model, students engage in rigorous Common Core State Standards curriculum. The program has now expanded through fourth grade in the 2016-2017 school year. Come take a tour and get to know our state of the art language academy taught by specialized credentialed teachers in Spanish! For more information, please call the school office at 562-789-3210.TK and  Kindergarten Enrollment for the 2017-2018 school year will begin on the first week in February.

English Program

As with our Dual Immersion program we offer the same state of the art, rigorous common core state standards program in English for families that wish to enroll their child in the English program. During the 2017-2018 school year we will offer Spanish for students as an elective for the families that want their child to learn a different language at a smaller scale. Come take a tour and visit our highly qualified credentialed teachers in our English classrooms!

Reader's Workshop and an entire Balanced Literacy Approach is the focus at Phelan

Reader's Workshop is a big part of our balanced literacy approach at Phelan. Technology is embedded throughout workshop. We take pride in the dedication and commitment teachers have made to the workshop process.
