French Immersion Program

In French Immersion, students are immersed in the French language through other subjects, including math, social studies and physical education. This approach enriches their vocabulary, develops problem-solving skills, and creates more opportunities to speak French in a meaningful context.

French Immersion also integrates cultural studies into daily language instruction. Students are able to develop strong fundamental skills in oral communication i.e. listening and speaking, as well as reading and writing.

The program is designed with English-speaking parents/guardians in mind. No matter your knowledge of the language, parents/guardians are able to support their children every step of the way.
