What Is French Immersion?
French immersion is a highly successful approach to second language learning — an effective way for students to become functionally fluent in French while achieving all of the objectives of the regular school program. French is the language of instruction for a significant part of the school day; that is, several or all subjects, except English language arts, are taught in French. This program is designed for students whose first language is not French. The objective is full mastery of the English language, functional fluency in French, as well as an understanding and appreciation of the French culture.
 

The French Immersion Program in SD70 began in 1981, and has since grown to be a well-established and popular program in the Alberni Valley. It is the only program of choice in the district offered at the elementary level.

School District 70 proudly offers 2 choices for the French Immersion program (K-12):

Early Immersion Program:

K-5  - École élémentaire Alberni

6-8  -  École intermédiaire EJ Dunn
