French Immersion gives your child an opportunity to become highly proficient in oral and written French, and to experience French culture.
In Kindergarten to Grade 3, students are primarily instructed in French. Formal English instruction is incorporated in the program, starting in Grade 3. The program is based on Alberta's approved curriculum.
École Broxton Park School offers an optional full-time (every day, all day) French Immersion Kindergarten program. The program costs approximately $400/month per child, and a deposit of $800 is due at the time of registration. This fee covers the unfunded portion of the staffing and operational costs.
