French Immersion Program

Willingdon is a French Immersion school where only French is taught during the first three years of schooling, at the Kindergarten and Cycle I levels; all subjects, with the exception of Ethics and Religious Culture, are taught in French.

Once in Cycle II, the students receive instruction in both English and French.

The subjects taught in French at the Cycle II and III levels are French second language, sciences humaines, éthique et culture réligieuse, éducation physique et à la santé, musique et arts plastiques.  The courses instructed in the English language are English language arts, mathematics and science and technology. The Immersion schedule of the Cycle II and III students alternates whole days for each language; the fifth day is shared with instruction in both French and English.
