Akins Dual Language Program

Akins is in its second year of its Dual Language Program. Students in the DL Program come from any of the 7 academies at Akins Early College High School. The purpose of this program is to offer non-native & native Spanish speaking students opportunities to learn the course subject in the academic Spanish language. For example, in the DL World Geography course, students would learn vocabulary, continents, countries & cultures all in Spanish. In a DL geometry class, students would learn all the mathematic terms/vocabulary in Spanish.
