French Immersion (K-12)

French Immersion ​(Elementary)


French Immersion programs are designed for students who do not speak French at home. In the TCDSB, French Immersion begins in Junior Kindergarten in 19 schools. Students learn French as a subject and French serves as the language of instruction in most other subjects. 


From Kindergarten to Grade 4, students will receive approximately 75% of their instruction in French. From Grades 5 to 8, students will receive approximately 50% of their instruction in French. French instructional time may vary to address the school’s local need, particularly in combined grades.

Learn more about our virtual information sessions coming up in December and January.
