At Thunder Bay Catholic our French Immersion program offers students to learn and explore in our other official language. Our shared vision along with the Ministry of Education is to enable our students to have confidence and the ability to use French in their daily lives. We aim to provide our students with the capacity to communicate and interact in a variety of social settings; post-secondary education, part-time, or professional work environments, travel and leisure.

French Immersion can help children become excellent communicators and creative thinkers. Being able to think and live in two different languages opens up the mind to more possibilities, helping foster creativity. Our commitment is for students to communicate and interact with growing confidence in French, while developing an appreciation of Francophone cultures and perspectives in order to participate fully as Canadian and global citizens.

Our French Immersion program starts in year 2 Kindergarten and is offered until graduation where students will receive a bilingual certificate.
