HTS offers an Extended French Certificate to students entering Grade 9 from a French Immersion or a French language school. Our goal is to develop French-language knowledge and skills at a high level while continuing to provide an understanding and appreciation of francophone culture in Canada and around the world. 

By the end of the four-year program, students will not only have gained the ability to converse freely on familiar topics; but will also be able to speak, read and write in French confidently across a wider range of disciplines and subject areas.

A certificate in Extended French is granted to a student who has successfully completed the sequence of four courses in Extended French and a minimum of three courses in other subjects taught in French.
