School Curriculum

French School Curriculum

The curriculum at LFT stems from the French Ministry of Education and is enhanced with Canadian classes and activities. Based on the philosophy of whole child values, our students grow academically and socially from in-class studies and hands-on experiences.

With a well-rounded curriculum, LFT complements the French curriculum with a Canadian program, including advanced English language and literature courses (for an overview of our English program, click here). The LFT curriculum also includes in-depth study of Canadian history, geography and the economy. Essentially, students get the best of both worlds – a stellar French education augmented by important Canadian content in the fields of history and geography. Language is a major pillar at LFT – through studies it’s been shown that learning multiple languages not only opens up your world, but it improves cognitive development and strength.  At LFT, students can study Spanish, Mandarin, Italian and German and they can be included in the Baccalauréat Examination courses. We also prepare our students for several language diplomas, as our school is an examination centre for both the Cervantes Institute (Spanish) and the Goethe Institute (German).  The LFT also offers an International Option of the French Baccalauréat (OIB) for our bilingual students or those with a very advanced level in English. LFT is the only school in Toronto to offer both the French Baccalauréat and the OIB. The OIB (International Option of the French BAC) is an enriched curriculum open to students in all tracks with the aim of promoting a fully bilingual and bicultural education. The program consists of advanced-level studies in English and an integrated History-Geography course taught by French and Canadian faculty. The OIB is not a separate diploma, but rather a specialisation within the framework of the French Baccalauréat; the OIB is not the International Baccalaureate (IB). Students take the OIB during Grades 11 and 12 and must be fully bilingual. The OIB is the most challenging option a student can take.  For more information, click here.
