The English Language Learners (ELL) program at Dakar Academy is designed to assist non-native English speakers to function in the general education classroom. The ELL program is available for students in 1st to 12th grades.
Any non-native English-speaking student applying to DA must be tested in the three areas of English proficiency:
If a student scores as non fluent in any of those areas, he/she is eligible to receive ELL services. After reviewing the test scores, the ELL teachers and administrators will discuss grade and class placement of the student. Testing may also be performed at the end of the school year to determine the necessity for continued ELL support.
