Catholic trilingual school to open in Alhambra

Last June All Souls School closed its doors due to lack of enrollment. This fall, it will reopen, but with a new multi-lingual and multi-ethnic approach, the Pasadena Star News is reporting. The school will become one of the first Catholic schools to offer dual language immersion in both Spanish and Mandarin.

"Spanish is a crucial skill in Los Angeles and California. Mandarin is going to prepare them to work in a global market," Kevin Baxter, superintendent of elementary schools for the Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles, told the Star-News. "Those are the long-term benefits. The short-term benefits are (students becoming) more academically successful in elementary, middle and high school."

The school will start by offering two 30-student bilingual Mandarin-English and Spanish-English kindergarten classes in September. More information is available at 626.281.0466.

  1. As a victim of a catholic school education that tried to eradicate my language and culture, it’s about time the Archdiocese get’s it right and uses the cultural and linguistic capital that children bring to mainstream schooling to succeed in our multicultural society and multilingual world economy
