French Immersion Program

​​The Division offers a French Immersion program within the City of Camrose. The program is located in 3 dual track schools: 

École Sifton School​ (Pre-K to Gr.5)

École Charlie Killam​ (Gr.6 to Gr.8); offers two French Immersion programs:  
- an Early French Immersion program (for students who started French Immersion in kindergarten or grade 1) 
- a Late French Immersion program (for students who wish to start French Immersion in grade 6) 

The program is continuing to expand as more students enrol and more course offerings are added. French immersion is a highly successful approach to second language learning - an effective way for students to become functionally fluent in French while achieving all of the objectives laid out by Alberta Learning. French is the language of instruction for a significant part of the school day; that is, several or all subjects, except English Language Arts, are taught in French. This program is designed for students whose first language is not French.
