SCHOOLS AND ACADEMIES
New Brunswick French International Student Program welcomes students from 12 to 18 years of age. All courses are in French, except for English class. Whether they have basic knowledge or advanced language skills, participants are supported by school staff. A full year or semester may be validated; it may be possible to obtain a high school diploma.
The school board provides a welcoming, safe and healthy environment, where each student is greeted with open arms and accepted as a member of the family. We ensure the best possible match in regards to the lifestyle, interests and location.
The school board also offers accelerated development programs for students who excel at the academic level with a special interest in the arts, elite level sports or science & technology
New Brunswick French International Student Program recently underwent major renovations and is at the forefront of modern technology with SMART boards in almost every classroom. They also have amenities such as auditoriums, gymnasiums, and sports fields available for student use.
SPORTS AND ARTS
The highly developed sports program offers many different individual and team sports for boys and girls, either at the school or in partnership with community facilities. They’ve won many provincial–soccer, volleyball, improvisation & hockey championships.
Adding to school activities, the community itself offers competitive figure skating opportunities, skiing, snowboarding and climbing clubs.
There are several musical and dance groups, and a large-scale production is entered in the annual provincial youth theatre festival. People from the community and many local businesses play a key role in enriching education and students are guided in developing an entrepreneurial spirit. With stained-glass making integrated into the Grade 9 art class, a micro-business was also set up to create small pieces to promote French culture and the maple sugar industry during the World Acadian Congress, an international event that took place in the area in 2014.
Extracurricular activities include a senior choir and dances, as well as a theatre troupe and improvisation team that perform at the provincial level.
The schools are located in various communities in New Brunswick, ranging from small towns to larger cities. Some are in French regions, and some are in more bilingual regions. New Brunswick is the only officially-bilingual province in Canada. It has beautiful coastline, as well as the Appalachian Mountain Range.
