K-12 Programs of Choice

French Immersion

Greater Victoria School District is pleased to offer both Early and Late French Immersion. The aim of both programs is to provide students with the opportunity to become functionally bilingual by graduation while, at the same time, achieving the learning outcomes of the BC curriculum. Students graduating from Early or Late Immersion receive a Bilingual Dogwood in recognition of their completion of the French Immersion program.

Students can enter Early French Immersion in Kindergarten or in Grade 1, and Late French Immersion in Grade 6.
