French at the Ottawa Catholic School Board

When it comes to learning French, we aim to equip our students with the ability to communicate beyond our classrooms. Whether in the context of travel, leisure, post-secondary education, part-time, or professional work environments, we share the Ministry of Education’s vision to enable our students to have the confidence and ability to use French effectively in their daily lives. 

Pathways to French at every OCSB school

Every school in the Ottawa Catholic School Board offers French Immersion and Extended French or Core French pathways for students. This means your child can learn French at your neighbourhood school, regardless of the French pathway they choose.
