St. Procopius Elementary School is Chicago’s only Catholic dual-language (EnglishSpanish) school. We offer children (pre-kindergarten through eighth grade) a truly unique educational experience in a faith-based environment firmly grounded in the Jesuit tradition. As a dual-language school, instruction at St. Procopius is divided between English and Spanish—with instruction predominantly in Spanish in the early years, and transitioning to an even EnglishSpanish split by the time students reach third grade. The ultimate goal is that, in addition to fulfilling the requirements of the core curriculum, students will be bilingual and bi-literate when they graduate to high school.
Our method of dual-language instruction at St. Procopius makes use of a two-way immersion program in which there is a suitable mix of students whose primary language is English and whose primary language is Spanish. In this manner, students not only learn from their instructors in traditional ways, but are also interacting with each other during lessons and learning academic vocabulary that allows them to build bridges of knowledge between both languages.
