French Immersion

French Immersion is a program of studies in which French is the language of instruction for a significant part of the school day. All subjects are taught in French (except the formal study of English). French Immersion is designed for students whose first language is not French. The objective of the program is full mastery of the English language, functional fluency in French, as well as an understanding and appreciation of the French culture.

The French Immersion program is designed for children whose parents do not usually speak French. Parent-teacher conferences are held in English and report cards are always written in English. The philosophy of the immersion program is that no child should be denied the satisfaction and pride derived from becoming bilingual in the French language, and all children are welcome.
