Students of Rock Hill’s language immersion choice programs will have their own space this year, and a name has been proposed.
A committee was formed to come up with a name for the new Language Immersion Academy at Sullivan Middle School.
The $18 million immersion academy consolidates the Spanish language immersion programs at Ebinport and Richmond Drive elementary schools and the French immersion program at Rosewood. Construction on the school is set to be completed by August 1, said Mychal Frost, spokesperson for the Rock Hill school district.
After gathering feedback from the Rock Hill community, parents and staff, the committee proposed the name Cherry Park Elementary School of Language Immersion. The proposed name was submitted Monday to the Rock Hill school board.
The school board will vote on the proposed name at its Feb. 26 business meeting.
The academy, which will serve kindergarten to fifth-grade students in a language immersion program, is set to open in the fall 2018. The two-story building will connect with the middle school.
