Ontario’s French-language schools

In Ontario, there are four kinds of “school boards.” All are funded and regulated by the government. How do they differ? It’s a matter of who they were originally meant to serve.

For historical reasons, Ontario created English and French schools, which are either non-denominational or Catholic. French-language non-denominational schools, also called public schools, welcome students of all religions in a spirit of equality.

  • At the end of their secondary studies, all of our students master both French and English.
  • In addition to French and English, our students often speak another language: 67 different languages have been noted in our schools.
  • Our graduation rate is 6% higher than the provincial average (4 years).

French lives here.

A French language school is much more than a learning environment where the language of communication is French. It’s a vibrant community where a rich and diverse culture is proudly expressed in French and young people develop at their own pace to reach their full potential. A French language school becomes a way of life.

Who can choose a French-language school in Ontario?

  • A child who has at least one Canadian parent whose mother tongue is French;
  • A child who has at least one Canadian parent who attended a French-language school in Canada;
  • A child who has a brother or a sister who attended a French-language school in Canada.

If a parent wants to register a child in a French-language school in Ontario but does not meet the admission requirements, he or she can still request admission. The child and the parent will be invited to meet with an admissions committee to determine whether the child can speak, read and write in French at his or her age level and academic level.

Parents should bring to the school:

  • the child’s immunization record;
  • the child’s birth certificate;
  • the child’s report card, if the child is already attending school
