Edu-Futuro offers two types of enrichment programs: (1) a Spanish school that offers classes on Saturdays during the fall and spring semesters from 9 am to 12 pm for children from pre-k to 6th grade and adults; (2) a summer camp for children ages 4-11 that runs 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 Saturday classes. It is not uncommon to see children attend both the Saturday School and the Summer Academy. During FY 2018, there were 153 registrations for these programs. Click on the tab for each of these programs to learn more about them.
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 the Saturday 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.
This program is offered on Saturday mornings during the Fall and Spring semesters and runs for 13 weeks each semester. Arlington Public Schools supports the program by providing the classroom space needed in one of its Spanish immersion elementary schools. Currently, the Saturday Spanish School serves students from Arlington and other localities in Northern Virginia, Washington D.C., and Maryland.

2019-2020 Spanish Classes Calendar
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 Saturday Spanish School during the school year.
We offer 2 one-week sessions of Spanish Academy 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.
