French Immersion

​​​​FI photo.jpgThe Greater Essex County District School Board is proud to offer the Early French Immersion program where students begin learning in French as early as Junior Kindergarten.

Immersion is designed for students whose first language is not French. As students move through the program, they will learn in both French and English.  The objective is full mastery of the English language, functional fluency in French, as well as an understanding and appreciation of the French culture. It is designated as Early French Immersion because students may enroll in the program beginning in Junior or Senior Kindergarten or the beginning of Grade one.
