Extended French

HCDSB currently offers an Extended French Program beginning in Grade 5 at various sites across our school district.

About the Program

Extended French is an optional program with limited enrolment. The goal of the Extended French Program is to develop functional proficiency in students through the provision of a significant amount of curriculum with French as the second language of instruction.

Students must be entering Grade 5 in their September start date, in order to be eligible to participate in the Board’s Extended French Program. 

Where is this Program Offered?

The Extended French Program is offered regionally, and sites will change from time to time to address student enrolment and other considerations.
