German Immersion Program

Orange Hunt Elementary School has a partial German Immersion Program for students in first grade through sixth grade. In the immersion program, students spend approximately half of each day learning mathematics, science, and health in German. The other half of the day is spent learning social studies, language arts, and reading in English. There is no formal criteria for enrollment, but the program is only open to residents of Fairfax County.

Our immersion teachers team with the grade-level English teachers to integrate the total FCPS curriculum. The goals of the FCPS immersion program are to foster grade level academic achievement, develop bilingualism and biliteracy as well as intercultural competence.

Orange Hunt German Immersion students are enrolled through a lottery process. Visit the World Language Immersion Programs Registration page for more information.
