French Immersion Program
St. Charles College offers a French Immersion program option which is available to all students who have begun their studies in a French or French Immersion program.
This is a highly successful approach to second language learning in which students receive instruction in French for a significant portion of the day. Students study the same curriculum content as their peers in the regular English program. It is designed to provide English-speaking children with the opportunity to become highly proficient in French as well as in English. There is no expectation that parents of students in the French Immersion program are able to understand or speak French.
An Immersion program means that French is not only the medium in which subjects are taught, but it is also the means of communication between pupils and teachers in the classroom and, as much as possible, beyond the classroom.
