Kari Anne Calarco didn’t grow up learning a second language. Now, as she works to learn French as an adult, she hopes to make it easier for her two young sons.

Calarco’s oldest son, 7, began learning French and some Mandarin while he attended school in Washington, D.C. When Calarco and her husband, Chris, moved to Fort Collins, they wanted him to keep learning French, so they tried another local language immersion school, but it didn’t quite fit their needs, Calarco said.

So Calarco decided to start her own. She teamed up with Jenny Whitaker to found AXIS Colorado and AXIS International Academy.
