The Vancouver School Board's Late French Immersion program accepts 10 and 11 year olds who have successfully completed grade 5.
Elementary Late French Immersion is offered at:
In grade 6, 100% of the BC curriculum is taught in French (emphasis is on oral French).
In grade 7, English Language Arts are reintroduced while other subjects continue to be taught in French.
Students in grade 5 may apply for admission to grade 6 Late French Immersion. Applicants are welcome to apply directly to any of the 3 Elementary schools offering Late French Immersion for the 2021/2022 school year. After the January 31st application closing day, all those who applied will have their names entered into a draw to determine who will be offered available seats at each location. Families will then be contacted regarding offers for placement at each site for which their name is drawn.
Please note that due to the nature and pace of the program, students will not be admitted to the Late French Immersion program after the second week of instruction.
