French Immersion programs are designed for students who do not speak French at home.
The Early Immersion Program begins in Senior Kindergarten. It offers 100% French instruction in the classroom until the end of grade 3, although some specialist subjects may be taught in English. English instruction is gradually introduced beginning in grade 4 until it becomes a half-day program from Grades 6-8. Designated school pathways exist to ensure that students have a continuation of program from the SK entry to the end of grade 12.
The application process for admission to Early French Immersion programs begins in November. It is an online application process. It is not a first-come, first-served process.
