How to Apply
We are excited to meet your family and invite you to learn more about CFIS as your child's educational home. We welcome new students and their families to the CFIS community each year. Our application process is intended to find a mutually good fit between families, students, and the school. Our Admissions team considers each applicant’s academic record, character, and citizenship qualities. Families that find CFIS to be a good fit are committed to French immersion education and enjoy being part of and contributing to our school community.
No previous experience in French is required for admission to our Early Childhood Division — Junior Preschool, Preschool, Junior Kindergarten and Kindergarten — and for Grades 1 and 2 through our Embark transitional immersion program.
For students entering Grade 3 through Grade 12, applicants must be currently attending a Francophone or French immersion school to be eligible to apply and attend CFIS.
CFIS welcomes applications from international families. Families who do not have Canadian citizenship or permanent residency status are considered international.
CFIS also requires:
- At least one parent of international students must possess a valid work or study permit during the application process, which must not expire prior to the start of school in September.
- The student must reside with their family. We do not offer boarding facilities or a homestay program.
- The student must be proficient in French if applying to Grade 3 and higher.
Below are the application deadlines, including when all required documents are to be submitted.
All applications received prior to the application deadline will be given equal consideration, regardless of the timing of their receipt. We are excited to receive your application and ask that you apply only in the appropriate year, not sooner.
