What is Early Immersion?
Early Immersion programs are designed for students who do not speak French at home. The Early French Immersion program provides the maximum French language experience available in our schools.
Early Immersion begins in Senior Kindergarten. All class activities are conducted in French until the end of grade 3 although some specialist subjects like Phys. Ed. may be taught in English.
English is introduced in Grade 4 for about one hour per day and increases to half of the daily class time by Grade 6.
After Grade 8, students continue the French Immersion program at designated secondary schools. Students who successfully complete a minimum of 10 credits in French at the secondary school level are eligible for a Certificate of Bilingual Studies in French.
Further information on French as a Second Language programs and the application process
