Language acquisition in the MYP is a phased program that supports skill acquisitions in reading, writing, speaking and listening. Students receive tiered support depending on their phase, which can include push in and pull out support by highly qualified language teachers.

Nova offers all six phases of the MYP Language Acquisition program in grades 6-8 and Phase 5/6 support in grades 9-10.  For more information on Language Acquisition, please refer to our language policy.
