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)
- École Camrose Composite High School (Gr.9 to Gr.12)
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.

If you are interested in an At Home Learning program for 2021-2022 please read through the following options, depending on your grade.
Students in grades 5-9 can register through Battle River Alternative Centre for Education (BRACE) for an online, teacher led program. THIS PROGRAM IS CURRENTLY NOT ACCEPTING NEW REGISTRATIONS.
Students in grades 10-12 can register at their home school, and let their school administrators know they would like to share and take online programming. Students in high school can take as many courses as they would like through BRACE, while still being enrolled at their home school. This is known as a shared learner. This will allow students to take part in school sports, their home school graduation, and also take courses through their home school as well.
If you are interested in being a full time high school student with BRACE, please go to the Outreach/Online tab for more information.
