École Holy Cross is a French Immersion School where French is the language of instruction. All subjects, with the exception of English Language Arts and Religion, are taught in French. Instruction in English Language Arts begins in grade two.
The desired outcomes for students are:
a high proficiency in the English language;
functional fluency in French;
an understanding and appreciation of francophone cultures; and
mastery of the skills and abilities identified in the core and complementary courses.
We accept students for our French Immersion program in Kindergarten or Grade 1. All students follow the Programs of Study set by Alberta Learning and are expected to achieve established standards.
