Extended French


Michael Power/St. Joseph is one of the TCDSBs first schools to offer an Extended French Program. 

Since the 1980s, the French Department has been committed to offering a rich, experiential and authentic journey towards bilingualism to those Grade 8 Extended French students who have made the wise decision to continue in the Extended French program at the secondary level.  

By being a part of Michael Power/St. Josephs Extended French program, these students have enjoyed the best of two worlds!  As our students say, being in the Extended French program allows you to be part of a smaller community within a larger one.  

So those of you who are currently in a Grade 8 Extended French Program, we hope that you make the right decision!  Stay in French and be a part of our longstanding Extended French Program!
