Early French Immersion: K-7

The Vancouver School Board's Early French Immersion program accepts 5 and 6-year-olds at the beginning of their formal schooling. This program is intended for non-French speaking students who wish to develop a high-level of proficiency in both official languages. 

The BC curriculum is instructed in French from kindergarten to the end of Grade 3. From Grades 4-7, 50 to 80% of the BC curriculum is taught in French. 

Although the common point of entry to Early French Immersion is kindergarten, Grade 1 students may enter up to September 30th  if space is available.
