SELA currently operates a location in Hingham, which includes 170 students ranging in age from 3 months to 5 years in its School of Early Global Education and 81 students from Kindergarten to Grade 6 in its Elementary School. SELA’s mission is to provide each student with a unique and personalized learning experience through an immersion education of the highest academic quality, which inspires and motivates students to strive for more knowledge and become bilingual, competent, global citizens.

Sandra Baldeon, Founder and Executive Director of SELA, says of the expansion:

“SELA was founded in 2004 to bring immersion education of the highest academic quality to our students, from an early age. Our growth, innovation, passion, and experience allow us to share our unique curriculum and love of language learning with other communities that can benefit from our school. We’re so excited to finally be a part of the Norwell community!”
