High School Dual Language Programs

The program is intended for students who participated in middle school dual language or are proficient in Spanish.

The three goals of Austin ISD's dual language program are:

  • students excel academically

  • students become bilingual and biliterate 

  • students develop positive cross-cultural competency

Our high school program includes:

  • Two content courses taught in Spanish each year

    • One Spanish language seminar course each year

      • The recommended sequence of these courses includes:

        • Spanish Latin American Studies

        • Cine Las Americas

        • Pre-AP 5/Spanish 5

        • Advanced Language and Career Applications

    • One core content (social studies, math, and/or science) 

    • Campuses may offer additional course options in Spanish

Upon successful completion of the dual language program, students will have the opportunity to receive the AISD Dual Language Seal of Biliteracy.
