An opportunity for your child to be bilingual…

The goal of French Immersion is to develop functionally bilingual students through teaching most of the curriculum in French.  At the elementary level, at least 50 per cent of all instruction is provided in French. Niagara Catholic currently offers French Immersion in five Catholic elementary schools: St. Mark Catholic Elementary School in Beamsville; Holy Name Catholic Elementary School in Welland; Notre Dame and Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Elementary Schools in Niagara Falls, and Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Elementary School in St. Catharines. This represents elementary French Immersion programming at seven of eight Niagara Catholic secondary schools. There are no French Immersion programs available in the Lakeshore Catholic family of schools at this time.


French Immersion is currently available in the following grades at each school:
