Choosing the program that is right for each student involves a decision based on personal values as well as personal abilities. There may come a point when a student would get a better mark if she/he took a course in English rather than French but then a valuable opportunity to improve French skills would be lost. Personal choices and values play a great role in the decision to take a course in French or English. The following four programs are offered at CVR:
- English Program - students take the French second language course at each level and all other compulsory courses in English. A CVR certificate is awarded to those students who successfully complete the program.
- Bilingual Program- students take the advanced French program at each grade level along with some compulsory courses taught in French. A New Frontiers School Board certificate is awarded to those students who successfully complete the program.
- Bilingual with Honours- students must fulfill the requirements of the Bilingual Certificate program as well as take a mother tongue (langue d’enseignement Sec.5) French course in the final year. A New Frontiers School Board certificate is awarded to those students who successfully complete the program.
- Work Oriented Training Pathway - For students who finish Secondary Cycle One without having met the required competencies in language and mathematics, a new, Work-Oriented Training Path is available. This path will give students who have difficulty at school, with the opportunity to follow a course of study leading to employment and a qualification. It includes a general education component and an on-the-job training component, providing either preparation for employment or training for semiskilled occupations.
