Any student who is eligible to attend a Dufferin-Peel Catholic school and who is presently a Grade 4 student is invited to apply for the Extended French (EF) program for Grade 5 in September 2024. The Extended French program starts in Grade 5 with 50% of the program taught in French at the elementary level. The subjects taught in French are French Language, Social Studies, Science, and one of the following subjects: Visual Art, Music, Drama or Physical Education. This program offers an excellent opportunity for becoming functionally bilingual in later years.

Applications for Grade 5 Extended French are now closed for the 2024-2025 school year.

Parent/guardian info sessions were held online on February 6 & 8, 2024 to provide details about the Grade 5 Extended French Application Process for students starting Grade 5 in September 2024.
