About Us

Students new to the Unites States and the English language are transitioned into Douglas County high schools through a partnership with intensive language development at the Newcomer Center and the local high school ESOL program. The academic language of high school content courses is extremely rigorous, thus the Newcomer Program will provide opportunities to develop English language skills through content in a nurturing environment. Utilizing intensive curriculum and research-based English language learning methodologies and strategies, the center will offer four courses which focus on communication skills and prerequisite content in science, math, social studies, and language arts.

The center will be located at the Academies of Douglas County Success Center at 2300 Shoals School Road, Douglassville, GA 30135. The program is a half-day in length, with students returning to their home schools daily to participate in classes with their native-English speaking peers.

The Goals of the Newcomer Program are:

-To accelerate development of students' English language and literacy skills
-To increase promotion and graduation rate
-To enhance self-image and formulate academic goals
-To integrate students into social climate of school
-To provide supplementary instruction in core content areas
-To equip with academic and study habits which lead to success
-To enhance and build a strong school/family relationship
