New Brunswick French International Program
PAC-Place aux compétences welcomes students in their French classrooms and communities with the ‘Programme d’accueil des élèves internationaux’. We have community schools (both entrepreneurial and culture oriented), math tournaments, sports teams, orchestras and bands. We also offer the International Baccalaureate, as well as a Sport-Studies program for elite athletes in partnership with local universities. A one week summer camp, offered before the start of the school year, offers an introductory course in French for those with limited knowledge of the language. While visiting various tourist attractions, and experiencing fun outdoor adventures, you will also get to know the regional history and culture.
