Language Enrichment Programs

Edu-Futuro’s original program (formerly known as Escuela Bolivia) is a well-established academic program focused on Spanish Language acquisition and cultural enrichment. The Program was started by Bolivian parents in 1999 to support their children’s academic achievement. In recent years, Edu-Futuro Spanish School has attracted a growing number of native English speakers, who in 2014 constituted 50% of the student population. This shift in demographics has called for the need to revamp the curriculum, in order to provide for instructional differentiation for native and non-native Spanish speakers, and to promote greater cross-cultural awareness.

Edu-Futuro offers two types of Language Enrichment Programs: (1) a Spanish school that offers virtual classes and classes, usually on Saturdays during the fall and spring semesters (temporarily suspended by Covid-19 disruption,) from 9 am to 12 pm for children from pre-k to 6th grade, and for adults in the evenings, virtually; (2) a summer camp for children ages 4-11 that runs -in general- during the last two weeks of August.

Many families use our Summer Spanish Academy to get to know our year-long enrichment program better before committing to it. Others want their children to keep practicing Spanish during the summer and not forget the skills that they have acquired during the previous year, so they sign up their children for the camp as a reinforcement to their online and/or Saturday classes. It is not uncommon to see children attend both Language Enrichment Programs. These programs are the only Edu-Futuro programs that are not free of charge.

Our Spanish Academy is an interactive immersion summer camp that builds Spanish language skills for children ages 4 (3 if fully potty trained) to 11. The camp is led by native Spanish speaker teachers who also teach at our Spanish School during the school year.

We offer 2 one-week sessions of Spanish Academy, usually during the month of August. Students work in small groups and focus on language acquisition through arts and crafts, music, cultural activities, and games. The camp is designed for Spanish speakers of all levels: from beginners to native speakers. Child care is available at a cost per hour for each child. For More Information, please contact Johana Lopez at johana@edu-futuro.org or call her at 646-346-3403. Thank you.

Free resources in Spanish: One of our former parents is launching a YouTube channel crafted for children, taught by children (an ex-student of our Spanish School), with content designed by an English teacher. This is a fun venue to learn Spanish while listening to native speakers. It is aimed to explore the language by building the foundational blocks, enhancing communication skills, and accelerating early conversation. Please, check it out!
