Centennial Collegiate is home to Saskatoon Public Schools designated French Immersion Program.
Secondary immersion is for students who have taken Kindergarten to Grade 8 French Immersion, late French Immersion or who have equivalent fluency. Students take three to five courses per year where French is the language of instruction. The remainder of their courses are scheduled individually. Students who complete the French Immersion Program in its entirety receive a bilingual certificate.
This program is designed for students whose first language is not French. The French Immersion program uses French as the primary language of instruction and communication in the school setting.
To maintain their French Immersion status in high school and to meet the requirements for Bilingual Mention on the transcript of Secondary Level Achievement, students are required to complete a minimum of 12 credits in French in Grades 10, 11 and 12. The courses necessary for Bilingual Mention include three French Language Arts courses (Français immersion 10, 20, 30). The other nine French credits can be for courses in the remaining areas of study or electives that are taught in French. Three English Language Arts courses are also compulsory (English Language Arts 10A or 10B, 20, 30A or 30B ).
