Wednesday, October 25th, 2023
9:00 AM & 7:00 PM (repeat events)
Join us at one of our Fall Open Houses, EXPLORE CFIS, on October 25th — for families and students already attending CFIS, and those considering joining our school community!
With morning and afternoon events and division-level sessions to choose from, you will have ample opportunity to learn about CFIS student experiences in our full French immersion environment. Get insights into the benefits of experiential education and second-language learning from our experts in multilingual education.
Families in our Early Childhood and Elementary Divisions will learn how CFIS students progress through the grades as they take part in a tour with our student ambassadors and then get your specific questions answered from our team of educators. Learn more about early and elementary learning at CFIS for kids in Junior Preschool to Grade 5, including our transitional immersion program, Embark.
Grade 6-12 students and their parents will have the opportunity to take a self-guided tour of our campus and hear directly from students in our Secondary Division about their experiences in CFIS experiential travel studies, student-led clubs, athletics, Musical and International Baccalaureate options.
