The Two-Way Immersion Network for Catholic Schools

TWIN logo

The Two-Way Immersion Network for Catholic Schools (TWIN-CS) is a national initiative advancing biliteracy and bilingualism in Catholic elementary schools by effectively coordinating research, expertise, and practice.  The Roche Center for Catholic Education launched TWIN-CS in the fall of 2012, with endorsement and collaborative start-up support from the National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA). The cohort consists of fourteen network schools selected to receive training and design support to build two-way immersion programs over the next two to three years.  The work of TWIN-CS is led by practitioner experts who guide the design and implementation of the two-way immersion model best suited for each participating school’s community.

To learn more about TWIN-CS, please visit our supplemental resource site at and view the TWIN-CS Executive Summary.



The mission for TWIN-CS is to grow and enhance the strong Catholic tradition of academic excellence by establishing a comprehensive support system for Two-Way Immersion Catholic schools providing high quality education to culturally and linguistically diverse students.
