The Education Permanente school offers French as a second language blended courses (half in class and half online) to the school community and parents whose children attend schools within the Conseil des écoles catholiques du Centre-Est (CECCE).  These courses are for Ontario residents.

These courses take place in various schools of the CECCE in Ottawa or outside of Ottawa once a week in class, from 6 pm to 9 pm for a 10-week period. Students are also required to complete 3 hours a week online on their own time. These courses are offered in fall and winter.

In order to pass each level, students:

  • must complete 30 hours online
  • obtain at least 75% as a final grade
  • cannot miss more than 3 classes


35.00$ per level (for online access)
