This begins in our junior preschool program and continues through Grade 12. Students adopt a culture of compassion, respect and a deep understanding of new cultures. Our early childhood program fosters students’ early development, learning and growth, keeping French language acquisition at the core of all we do. No French is required for early Elementary applicants."

At Calgary French & International School (CFIS), we are inspired by exploration and curiosity. Our immersive language learning environment and global education bring the world to our students in ways that help them experience other cultures, people and places in authentic and exciting ways.
Within a curriculum that encourages children to expand their interests and deepen their learning, CFIS students as young as 19 months benefit from enriched education, participate in various co-curricular activities, and graduate bilingual in French and English and functionally fluent in Spanish.
Our academics, extraordinary language education, international focus and development of the whole student form the foundation of learning at CFIS. We are an IB world school — offering both the senior high Diploma Programme and Primary Years Programme for preschool to grade 5 students — and we are moving towards becoming a full IB continuum school.
CFIS’s overarching programming develops the whole child — intellectually, socially, emotionally and physically. As multilingual learners in a United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) Associated School, students are encouraged to lead age-appropriate advocacy and humanitarian work related to their studies in their community and worldwide. Students are taught to effectively and confidently navigate different cultures through international connections, including travel studies in the Secondary Division.
At CFIS, our teachers and leadership team place a strong emphasis on individualized learning. Additionally, engaged principals, specialized classroom teachers, learning strategists and literacy coaches ensure CFIS students receive the attention required to thrive in all subject areas. As a result of the school’s dynamic learning environment, CFIS students’ average results on both diploma and course-awarded marks are considerably higher for CFIS students than the provincial average. Students are well-rounded in their achievements, transition easily into university and embody CFIS’s values as leaders, critical thinkers and ethical, engaged citizens. CFIS alumni avail themselves of an exciting range of post-secondary options at French and English universities throughout Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom.
Thank you for considering CFIS for your children. I look forward to meeting your family!
