Early French Immersion

French Immersion Programs are offered in designated areas of eligibility of the Halifax Regional Centre for Education and take place at specific French Immersion school sites. The entry point to the Early French Immersion program is at the Primary level. If you reside in the catchment area of any of the following neighbourhood schools, your child is eligible for the Early French Immersion program. Parents/guardians of students residing outside the areas of eligibility may seek placement for their child in an Early French Immersion program through the Out-of-Area Request process.

Students who live in an area of eligibility for Early French Immersion will register at the French Immersion designated school that serves their neighborhood. Please note the designated French Immersion school site may not be the neighborhood school. For example, if you live in the Admiral Westphal catchment area, the program is offered at Shannon Park School. Below is the list of schools whose catchment areas make students eligible for the Early French Immersion program.
