Pathways

Early French Immersion (Junior Kindergarten Entry)

Early French Immersion Pathways (all of the schools a student will attend from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 12) are determined for all students in the Early French Immersion program. To change your pathway school, you will need to apply to the requested school through Out-of-Area Admissions.

Please note: Due to recent changes to the Out-of-Area Admissions procedure, students in French Immersion/Extended French programs at a school other than their French program school based on their address, must return to their designated pathway school by address for middle/secondary school. If students wish to attend a middle/secondary French Immersion/Extended French program that is not associated with their address, they must apply to that school via the Out-of-Area Admissions process.
