Our Teaching Philosophy

The weekly courses are structured in order to successfully take four main pillars of our teaching philosophy into account:
  • the courses take place on weekends: they must therefore be fun to attend for the children,
  • parents expect academic progress: solid learning is the main objective of the program and requires consistent work, including some homework, without being overwhelming,
  • most students attend English-speaking schools: the curriculum takes this fact into account by focusing on the unique content and by responding to the unique challenges for children who are both Francophone and Anglophone,
  • culture is transmitted through language: a positive environment is therefore doubly important so that the students regard being in a French environment once a week as a highlight of their week and remain voluntarily immersed in the culture.
