What is the best option for my child?

How many parents have asked themselves this question when it was time to enroll their child in school?

In Alberta, it is possible to learn French in the classroom through three different study programs: Francophone School, French Immersion Program, and French as a Second Language courses.

Parents have many questions about their child’s future :

  • Does the Francophone school enable our child to learn English at a level that will allow them to succeed in life?
  • Because they attend a Francophone school, will my child be able to speak and write English proficiently?
  • If one of the parents at home doesn’t speak French, will they be able to help with homework?
  • Why do some Francophone schools not allow English instruction before the 3rd grade?
  • As immigrants to Canada, are we entitled to Francophone schools?
  • If our child attends a Francophone school, will they be able to continue their post-secondary education in English?

This conversation will help you better understand the differences between the two systems and make the best decision for your child’s future.
