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 to register directly at their in-catchment Late French Immersion school (General Gordon or Laura Secord) within the registration period of November 1 to January 31. In addition, a copy of the most recent grade 5 report card and a statement of commitment from the student must be attached.
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.
