Seven Summits Centre for Learning to offer French Immersion

Starting in September, the Seven Summits Centre for Learning will be offering French Immersion for Grades 10 to 12.

Starting in September, the Seven Summits Centre for Learning will be offering French Immersion for Grades 10 to 12.

At the beginning of this school year, the centre started a new partnership with School District 71’s Navigate NIDES, which has allowed it to offer more course options.

“So anybody who wants an alternative to finish off their education, but doesn’t want to lose their French, can certainly consider us as an option,” said Ann Quarterman, operations manager at the centre.

Parents and students — French Immersion or not — can learn more about what Seven Summits has to offer by attending an open house on April 19 at 7:30 p.m. at the centre.

The centre has had a high enough enrollment that it is looking into expanding.

“We’re looking for a bigger space. We wouldn’t be moving into it until the following year,” explained Quarterman.

“We’d like to be in a bigger space so we can increase our enrollment to around 60 kids,” she added. “We could squeeze 50 in where we are now, but it would be a bit of a squeeze.”

The centre’s international student program is also expanding. This year the school has two students from Britain, one from Turkey and one from Italy.
