Unlock Language Proficiency


Here at St. Ignatius College, we incorporate Canadian literary critic Northrop Frye’s belief that the underlying story of Western literature is a circular hero-quest that narrates the search for personal identity through four stories—romance, tragedy, irony and satire, and comedy.

English as a Second Language

The curriculum is designed to help students develop the skills they need to develop proficiency in everyday English, and most especially, the proficiency in academic English that will allow them to integrate successfully into the mainstream school program. ​

French as a Second Language

These programs provide students with challenging and varied opportunities to develop their French-language knowledge and skills. The content of each course is organized into four interrelated strands: speaking, listening, reading and writing.
