Thank you for showing interest in Riverbank Language Academy! We are excited to share our Kinder Open Enrollment information with you and are eager to offer an exceptional Spanish-English Dual Language Education to your child.

In 2005, a group of parents, teachers and community members discussed the creation of Riverbank Language Academy Charter School. Previously, the dual immersion program was run for many years as a program within the school district. This dedicated group of individuals freely gave their time to carefully plan and create a unique opportunity for children in this community and surrounding areas. Since 2007, we believe RLA to be a high quality school of choice and being a charter school offers us more flexibility, in an environment that values innovation. Charter schools provide teachers with the freedom and flexibility to innovate to best meet their student’s needs thus allowing the opportunity to have a real impact on students. Families and community members are welcomed in charter schools and are treated as partners in their child’s education; we welcome you to be involved by volunteering or serving on our schools governing board.

Riverbank Language Academy has been established with its own distinct purpose, mission, vision and goals. Families choose a Charter-Specific Spanish-English Dual Language Immersion program for many reasons which include but are not limited to the following:

  • Students acquire multiple languages and multicultural skills, preparing them for the 21st century economy
  • Knowledgeable, professional staff with a commitment to DLI, school choice, and most importantly their students
  • Increased exposure to ethnic and cultural diversity
  • RLA’s standards-based thematic teacher and collaborative learning strategies that are both student and teacher driven, not textbook driven
  • A strong belief in school choice
  • We encourage you to visit http://www.ccsa.org/understanding/ for additional information regarding Charter Schools

The official waitlist is also established on the day of the lottery.  There is no camping out allowed as all applications will be entered into the lottery.

     

  • It is very important that you register your child at your local neighborhood school in case your child’s name is not selected at the lottery. Contact your local school district to ask about their registration dates and times: Riverbank Unified School District 209-869-2538, Sylvan Union School District 209-574-5000.

     

  • If you need assistance with fulfilling dental or medical requirements for Kindergarten, please contact CASA del Rio Family Resource Center at (209) 869-0468.

    Selected families are required to complete the required application/registration materials and attend required orientation meetings prior to the student being placed in a class at RLA. IT IS IMPORTANT THAT ALL FAMILIES UNDERSTAND THE IMPORTANCE OF COMMITTING LONG TERM (KINDER THROUGH 8TH GRADE) WHEN ENROLLING.

     

  • We offer full- day schedule for both Transitional Kindergarten and Kindergarten. Our school hours are from 8:07 am – 2:12 pm. There is a fee based after school program for Kindergarten, you may contact CASA del Rio at 209-869-0468 for additional information.
