​​Interested in registering for French Immersion

There is one entry point for French Immersion in HDSB, this is Grade 2, with 100% instruction in French language. Registration for this program occurs between the second week of December and the last school day January each year.

Families who arrive in Halton after that date are still permitted to submit a registration form as they arrive, only until the week before Thanksgiving weekend.

Effective 2019 -2020 (Full implementation of new FI model)

​No Grade 1 French Immersion Entry​ (All grade 1 students will have Primary Core French)

Grade 2 ​ - 100% All subjects will be taught in French, including math; no English Language Arts

​Grade 3 - 80% French instruction. The 20% of instructional minutes not taught in French will be used to teach English Language Arts

Students may enter a French Immersion program if they meet the following conditions:

    • Students are attending Boyne PS for Grade 1 and are interested in registering for FI in Grade 2

  • Students are coming from a French Immersion program where the hours of instruction in French are equal to or greater than the HDSB French Immersion program.
