• French Connection


      Open to ALL Ontario High School Students!

      Paris, Caen, Beaune, Aix-en-Provence, French Riviera, Annecy

      Join us this summer as we tour historical and breathtaking France. Walk the bustling streets of Paris and take in the rich heritage.  Experience the view as you climb the Eiffel Tower, unwind on the beaches of Caen, and enjoy a local artisan market in Aix en Provence.  Leave your final mark in the province of Nice with its unusual mix of real-city grit, old-world opulence, and year-round sunshine. Continue onto famed Monaco as you see the glam, glitz, and natural beauty this city-state has to offer.

      The marriage between France and the Ontario French Curriculum is a match made in heaven! Study the classic tale of Les Miserables, and walk the streets of Paris as this story comes alive. Take part in a film study, L’Italien, tour the French Riviera and connect to key sites from this famed piece of cinematic art.  Make a memorable stop in Normandy as you gather the content needed for an assignment speaking to our rich Canadian heritage and the sacrifice of our Canadian soldiers.
