Dear Parents/Guardians and Students:

French Immersion is designed for students whose first language is not French. The objective is full mastery of the English language, functional fluency in French, as well as an understanding and appreciation of the French culture.

Students in the French Immersion program take the same subjects as the students in the English program. The students will study the French language and other subjects such as Science, Social Studies and possibly the Arts and Physical Education in French.

Designated school pathways have been developed to ensure that students have a continuation of program from their entry level to the end of Grade 12.

Please note, all students attending Elementary French Immersion schools will be bused if they live 1.6 km or further from the home French Immersion boundary school. Students accepted into the program can access transportation information by mid-August at For more information please call Niagara Student Transportation Services at 905-346-0290.
