French Immersion

French Immersion gives your child an opportunity to become highly proficient in oral and written French, and to experience French culture.

In Kindergarten to Grade 3, students are primarily instructed in French. Formal English instruction is incorporated in the program, starting in Grade 3. The program is based on Alberta's approved curriculum.

In 2019-2020, a pilot Full Day, Everyday French Immersion Kindergarten program is planned for École Broxton Park School. It is the intent to charge the fee of $3750 ($375 per month) to cover the unfunded portion of the staffing and operational costs.

If you are interested in enrolling your child in this program, please contact the principal at one of the following schools to arrange for a school tour:

French Immersion parents may have some questions regarding how to support their children in their learning. Much has been discovered about teaching and learning a second language since the inception of French Immersion in 1965. The publication Yes, You Can Help! is a summary of the information that is now available. Yes, You Can Help! is designed for parents of students from preschool to post-secondary, and is accessible on the Alberta Education Website.
