Toronto Catholic District School Board



New French Immersion Programs

Coming September 2018

We are pleased to share that following the successful community consultation, the Toronto Catholic District School Board is moving forward with the implementation of French Immersion Programming for September 2018 at the following schools:
Registration will begin in January 2018.
The introduction of enhanced programming at TCDSB schools is one aspect of our Long Term Program Plan (LTPP). Increasing the number of French Immersion programs available in our schools is a part of the LTPP and the Board’s ongoing responsibility to offer dynamic educational opportunities to its students across the City of Toronto.
The gradual implementation of French Immersion at these elementary schools will begin with establishing one French Immersion Kindergarten class in September 2018, in addition to continuing to provide English programming across all grades for families who do not wish to participate in French Immersion. This will ensure balanced growth within each school community over the coming eight years as French Immersion expands through the grades, so that by 2026 French Immersion will be available to students from Kindergarten through to Grade 8 at these school sites.  Students in the English program stream will continue to receive daily instruction in Core French from Grade 1 through to Grade 8.
The input of our parent/guardian community is essential to informing the Board’s program plans for our schools. We thank you for taking the time to participate and provide your feedback throughout this process.
Should you have any questions about the implementation of French Immersion at your child’s school, please contact your school office.
We invite you to share this good news with families in your neighbourhood who may be seeking French Immersion education for their children and invite them to contact our admissions department for information about registration in January.
