French Immersion

Our French Immersion Program is a one-way immersion model. Students develop literacy in both French and English while learning academic skills. All students must be fluent English speakers to qualify.

In grades K-2, students receive academic instruction in French only. Beginning in the third grade, formal English instruction is introduced with an English teacher. In grades 6-8, students continue with Humanities in French and receive instruction in other subject areas in English to prepare them for the transition to high school.
