Our Curriculum

As a dual tracked school, St. Theresa School houses both the regular English program and an Early French Immersion program.

Both our junior and senior kindergarten students attend school all day daily. The program consists of 50% French and 50% English instruction for the early French Immersion program. Our English program students receive Core French beginning in Junior Kindergarten.

The implementation of the Early Learning Kindergarten Program  assists the kindergarten teachers to highlight individual student's areas of strengths and needs via a play based learning program.  The Kindergarten Ministry of Education Document and the Born of the Spirit program direct the curriculum content.

In the Early French Immersion program, French is the exclusive language of instruction in grades one and two except for the Religion and Family Life programs. Three hundred minutes per week of English Language Arts instruction begins in grade three.

Participation in outdoor physical education classes is enhanced by gymnastics lessons at a North Bay Club and may include winter skating at Callander's outdoor facility or snowshoeing in the Callander area.
