The World Scholars Program at West Hall High School will begin its inaugural year in August, 2016. Designed to give students from World Language Academy an opportunity to continue their studies in a dual-immersion language model, the World Scholars Program offers a unique high school experience for WLA students and for rising freshmen who are advanced in their modern language abilities and/or Native Speakers of Spanish.
Students will take at least two academic courses in Spanish plus an advanced level Modern Language course during their freshman and sophomore years. As juniors and seniors, they will have the opportunity to participate in our IB Bilingual Diploma Program, our IB Career-related Program, Early College, or Dual Enrollment.
Additionally, students will participate in service learning and community involvement opportunities that will expand their cultural knowledge. These activities, plus a senior capstone project, will allow World Scholars Program students to earn the International Skills Diploma Seal* (*pending state board approval) as designated by the Georgia Department of Education.
