Member Application

Membership criteria (please read carefully)

Membership is open to schools, programs, or individuals whose work in immersion education and language immersion programs fits the following criteria:
  • Use a language other than English to teach subject matter content (for example, math, social studies, science);
  • Integrate language teaching with content teaching;
  • Offer instruction through the immersion language for at least 50% of the school day during the pre-school and elementary years; offer a minimum of two content areas taught through the immersion language in secondary continuation programs;
  • Promote additive bi- or multilingualism, i.e., enriched instruction in the immersion language sustained through the elementary years, including maintenance English;
  • Are held accountable for evaluating academic achievement in the content areas;
  • Employ teachers who are highly proficient in the language(s) of instruction and clearly separate teacher use of one language versus another for sustained periods of time.

Note: Schools or programs that do not fit this criteria may still become members and enjoy membership benefits, however, MAIN reserves the right to categorize these schools and programs as affiliate members. They will not be included on our list of member schools.
