French Immersion Program
Early French Immersion K to Gr.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.
Students enrolled in French Immersion study the same BC curriculum as students in the English language program, but the language of instruction and communication is French.
Kindergarten Application - Choice program registration happens in the month of January 2024
