Student’s benefit from the French Program allowing them to not only master the French language, but to also learn about the French culture and traditions, and gain a more international perspective.
Additionally, the Reformed French Program based on the Common Core of Knowledge, Skills and Culture (CCKSC) (in French: Socle Commun de Connaissances, de Compétences et de Culture) enhances students’ inquiry skills as students are given tasks requiring them to solve, experiment, explore, create, and communicate.
The CCKSC includes a range of key skills that go beyond academic excellence, such as social and civic skills, humanist culture, autonomy and initiative, to help students become proactive, altruistic, and critical-thinker citizens. Another area of the CCKSC is to provide students with a deeper understanding of different cultural perspectives and promote international mindedness. The remaining skills include research and inquiry skills, which address problem-solving skills, as well as information technology, now a core part of all aspects of life and learning.
