School of Choice Enrollment: February 3-28, 2014

Bergeson Elementary School and Capistrano Unified School District are proud to provide the first publicly offered (no cost) Mandarin Chinese Immersion Program in Orange County.  It is a well-proven educational model that provides academic instruction in English and Mandarin Chinese during the 6-year elementary period. The specific goals of this language immersion program after the 6th year are for students to develop high levels of language proficiency and literacy in both program languages, to demonstrate high levels of academic achievement, and to develop an appreciation for and an understanding of diverse cultures.

Children must be 5 years old by September 1, 2014, in order to apply for the 2014-15 school year. School of Choice Enrollment will be done on a Lottery System. Notification of acceptance into the program will begin in early March.
