Program Description

ELL Program

The ELL program supports English Language Learners in Grade 8 – 12 in acquiring social and academic language skills.

  • Social Language Skills: important for daily communication with teachers, peers and community members
  • Academic Language Skills: important for reading, writing, comprehending, expressing and interacting with content-specific materials

Newcomers arriving in Canada will settle and integrate into our school community by attending the ELL program and elective courses. Language acquisition is a journey and our ELL teachers aim to support our students in building a strong language foundation in order to successfully transition into academic courses.
