Denominational designation of schools
According to the Alberta School Act, all schools must be designated either “public” or “catholic”. Parents with kids at both École francophone de Camrose and École francophone de Beaumont will have to vote on the designation of their choice. To better understand each designation, the Greater North Central Francophone Regional Authority prepared a document to explain both denominational designations. You can read the document here.
Fully funded by the Alberta Government, our schools offer academic programs from kindergarten to grade 12 in accordance with the curriculum set out by Alberta Education and offer many advantages, to list only a few:
• Free bus transportation within the designated zone
• Full-time kindergarten program
• On-site preschool
• Daycare/after-school care in various schools
French first language education is intended for children who are eligible under section 23 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Studies and experience have shown that francophone schooling is the most effective way for a francophone child living in a minority setting to become highly proficient in French AND in English.
To find out whether francophone schooling is for you, please contact a school principal or the school board office.
