Language Lead Admin - GVA STARTALK Polyglot Program
Global Village Academies (GVA) are innovative language immersion charter schools with campuses in Aurora (K-8), Thornton (K-8) and Douglas County (K-5). Students learn core content through language immersion in their choice of French, Spanish, Mandarin, or Russian (depending on the school). GVA is truly a "global village." Our immersion teachers come from all over the world, each bringing their unique culture and language into the classroom. United by a common core, students are challenged to become world-class thinkers, capable of engaging ideas using multiple languages and cross-cultural perspectives, through internationally benchmarked curriculum spanning each language village.
STARTALK is a federal grant program funded by the National Security Agency with the objective of increasing the number of US citizens learning and teaching less commonly taught languages throughout our nation and inspiring those students to language careers, thereby contributing to language workforce development for the Federal Government.
This GVA STARTALK Polyglot Program is sponsored through our STARTALK grant at all of our GVA campuses for the Mandarin language and at GVA-North for the Russian language. GVA will provide students the STARTALK Polyglot Program in a hybrid in-person/virtual model with 20 hours pre-camp in-person activities and virtual meetings, 45 hours in person summer camp, and 20 hours post-camp in-person activities and virtual meetings.
