This study documented newcomer programs for recently arrived secondary students with limited English proficiency and the ways in which these programs promote student transitions into U.S. schools. The study identified secondary-level newcomer programs, examined their administrative, instructional, and sociocultural features, and compared their programs with traditional programs serving LEP students.
