Language & Learning Programs

English & French Language Learning

For non-native speakers of English or French, the ECB-CBS provides language support for all students in grades Kindergarten through 9 with intensive ELL (English Language Learning) and FLL (French Language Learning) programs. 

Students applying for grades 10, 11 and 12 at the ECB-CBS must demonstrate a functional level of academic English or French to complete the provincial graduation assessments in literacy and numeracy of the British Columbia Ministry of Education’s provincially prescribed curriculum. 

All non-native speakers of English or French are required to write a language proficiency test during the application process.

LEARNING SUPPORT SERVICES

The ECB-CBS will make every effort to accommodate a student’s learning needs.

Learning Support Services are educational requirements for students with learning difficulties, physical disabilities, or emotional and behavioural difficulties. Special education needs are identified through formal observations, evaluations and assessments, which determine the school’s instructional planning decisions, enabling all students to have equitable access to their educational program. The school’s instructional planning for individual students will be developed as either an adapted or modified academic program.

The ECB-CBS is not able to accommodate students with moderate or severe disabilities or students with significant conduct, communicative or emotional difficulties.

The School reserves the right to adjust program fees during the school year based on a student’s development and/or needs.
