Late French Immersion

Bienvenue! Welcome to the Late French Immersion Program

The Late French Immersion Program is a two-year intensive prog​ram offered to all students who have successfully completed Grade 5. In Grade 6, 100% of instruction is delivered in French with an emphasis on oral French, to ensure effective language acquisition.  English Language Arts are re-introduced in Grade 7 and represent 20% of instruction time, while all other subjects continue to be taught in French. In Grade 8, Late French Immersion students join their Early French Immersion peers for continuation of the French Immersion Program at the secondary level through to Grade 12. 

This highly popular second language program is offered subject to space availability and the requirements of the North Vancouver School District enrolment and registration process.
