MILFORD —Starting in the fall, kindergarten students entering Milford Catholic Elementary School will hear “hola” rather than “hello” from their teacher thanks to a new bilingual learning program.

The school is one of only 12 in the country selected by the National Catholic Educational Association and Boston College to offer a program where students will learn almost entirely in another language.

“We are honored to be part of a program that will further the skills and cultural understanding of our students,” said Principal Andrea Tavaska. “This two-way immersion program will have the academic quality and student outcomes…We’re especially excited to be in the forefront of this bilingual education model.”

The program is to teach students to be global citizens who are bilingual and understanding of other cultures.
