LaSalle Language Academy is a Chicago Public Magnet School with a concentration on world languages and cultures. We offer students a choice of four world languages: Chinese, French, Italian, and Spanish. Prior to Kindergarten, parents rank the four languages in order of preference. Children study the same language from Kindergarten through 8th grade. Education in the world language is as much a part of each child’s day as social studies, mathematics, science, language arts, and specialty subjects.
