Throughout the student body, there are dozens of heritage languages represented at Eagle Ridge Academy. The English Learner (EL) Program at Eagle Ridge is designed to ensure that all students develop the English language skills they need to succeed in the classroom, while also encouraging each and every EL student to be proud of their heritage language.
EL students receive language-based support that is tied directly to the grade-level curriculum. Different service models are used, depending on student need. Eagle Ridge Academy offers EL services in the form of push-in instruction, pull-out groups, one-on-one instruction, and sheltered classrooms. Decisions are made based on which model is most appropriate for a student’s English proficiency goals.
For a complete description of the EL program at ERA, or for questions that are not answered here, please contact one of our EL teachers, Cathy Lengvenis or Holly Strand.
