Register for French Immersion today! (K-12)
Have you ever thought of putting your child in French Immersion?
Lakeland Catholic School District has over 40 years of high quality programming experience in French Immersion instruction.
What if we do not speak French?
Actually many French Immersion students come from families who do not speak French at all.
How will my child learn English if they are in French Immersion?
Children start learning French in Kindergarten and in grade three, we begin instruction in English also.
Won’t that mean that my child will fall behind in English?
The goal of French Immersion is to develop students’ proficiency in French while building mastery of English – that is, not to replace a first language with an additional one but to develop proficient communication skills in both.
