French Immersion

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. John 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.

Students enter the French Immersion program either in Kindergarten or Grade 1, depending on their school.


Online Registration for students NEW to French Immersion in September 2018 will be available beginning Tuesday, January 9th, 2018 at 7:30a.m.
