For first and second Graders: An emphasis on French- and English-language reading and writing
First- and second-grade students will attend class in person for four full days a week, with Fridays reserved for online activities. They learn to write in cursive and read, using a kinesthetic approach in a bilingual model that necessitates significant in-person time. Students in each pod alternate their days in school with one Francophone and one Anglophone teacher.
For third, fourth and fifth graders: Focus on core French curriculum in preparation for Secondary School
In third, fourth and fifth grade, students will spend four days a week in school in half-day blocks with a Francophone homeroom teacher. All core subjects in the French curriculum, such as reading, math, history, and French, will take place in person in these grades, essential preparation for our students to meet the challenges of our Secondary School program.
In the afternoons, students in third, fourth and fifth grade will continue with regular English classes and bînome bilingual projects with their teachers in live and pre-recorded online learning sessions. Extra tutoring in French and in English for students will be available in live online Sessions. The English Language Learners (ELL) program, for children new to English, is available to all elementary students who need it.
Online Lycée - for those who need it
All elementary students have an option to opt for a fully online program, with a dedicated francophone homeroom teacher. The day includes live and pre-recorded online sessions that include French and English grammar, reading, writing, as well as math, science and history. Students join their classmates on Fridays for online art, music, specials classes and assemblies. Students are equipped with a Lycée-provided iPad for these sessions. Schedules are posted each week for ease of parent-guardian planning.
