Registration for September to June classes

You can expect a delay of up to 5 working days to process your child's registration. Once the registration has been processed, you should receive communication from the instructor-in-charge with further details regarding the language class 1 week before the first class (Sept 10 or 11, depending on the program). Due to the processing time for registrations, students who register after Thursdays of that week will be processed the following week. In order to be able to attend classes on September 10 or 11, students must complete their registration no later than Thursday, September 8.

If you have any questions about the registration, please contact the ILP office at
pli-ilp@ecolecatholique.ca.

The International Languages Program (ILP) offers weekend courses focusing on oral communication, reading and writing in languages other than French or English. Classes are led by experienced instructors who create a vibrant learning community for students through engaging activities. Students will gain literacy skills, communication skills, and cultural awareness. International language courses enhance students’ overall education, academic excellence, and ability to interact with people from diverse backgrounds
