Elementary enrollment

Why choose a Catholic school
French speaking

French-language Catholic education provides students with an inclusive environment that promotes lasting bilingualism. It helps to develop the competence to communicate in French and to develop a feeling of belonging to the Catholic faith. This is an unparalleled opportunity to be part of a vibrant culture.

The mandate of the Council is to plan, organize and offer structured situations that promote the learning of the French language and the construction of the French-speaking Catholic identity. 

Our mandate is made up of five dimensions:

1
Student learning and the development of transferable skills
2
Identity construction
3
Transmission of the French language and Francophone culture
4
The development of Christian spirituality and faith
5
Leadership development among support staff and promotion of individual and collective commitment

Language

According to the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, you have the right to enroll your child in a French-language school if you are either:

  • a parent, a Canadian citizen, whose first language learned and still understood is French;
  • a parent, a Canadian citizen, who received his primary education in a French-language school in Canada; OR
  • a parent, a Canadian citizen, whose child has received or is receiving his or her primary or secondary education in a French-language school.

However, the Ontario Education Act allows any parent or guardian to apply for admission. It is a simple process, which takes place through a meeting between members of the administration and the family.
