French Language Program
At Somerset Academy, standard French is taught by experienced teachers. The objective of our French Language Programme is to instill in our students a positive outlook towards French culture and an understanding of the Quebecoise in our bilingual society
French instruction begins in Junior Kindergarten. Some written work is introduced in Grade One and a balance of oral and written French is in place by Grade Three.
Following the Ontario Curriculum Guidelines, we provide a solid foundation for our students, and give them the opportunity to approach all high school programmes with knowledge and confidence. In recognition of their academic skills a number of Somerset Academy graduates have been granted advanced standing in high school French programmes.
