The Learning Immersion Program at Barringer Academic Center

The Learning Immersion program accelerates student learning through a rigorous curriculum focused on the strengths of each child. Each school’s staff is committed to teaching students to use real-world problem solving and higher-order thinking skills to prepare them for the 21st century.

In Learning Immersion (K-2), students are challenged to reach their fullest potential. Student learning is accelerated through an intense program that focuses on Gardner’s multiple intelligences and project-based instruction.
