The Program

Learning French promotes:  

If students hear it, they can say it. If students can say it, they can read it. And if students can read it, they can write it.

Admission

Effective September 1, 2017, Junior Kindergarten is the only entry point for new French Immersion students into the FI program in the Upper Grand District School Board. Additionally, each UGDSB school that offers FI at the JK level has a cap on the number of students admitted to FI. Entry into FI from other jurisdictions is possible, but not guaranteed, if your child has previous FI experience. Parents and guardians must check with their home school for more detail. For more information on the UGDSB’s French Immersion Registration and Selection Process, visit the board’s website.
