Japanese Immersion Program

Fox Mill Elementary School has a partial Japanese Immersion Program for students in first through sixth grade. In the immersion program, students spend approximately half of each day learning mathematics, science, and health in Japanese. The other half of the day is spent learning social studies, language arts, and reading in English. There is no formal criteria for enrollment, but the program is only open to residents of Fairfax County.

Our immersion teachers team with the grade-level English teachers to integrate the total FCPS curriculum. The goals of the FCPS immersion program are to foster grade level academic achievement, develop bilingualism and biliteracy as well as intercultural competence.

Fox Mill Elementary Immersion students are enrolled through a lottery process.
