At Sacred Heart School of Halifax we offer an intensive English as a Second Language Program for our international students Primary to Grade 12. Before entry into the program, students will be given an official language assessment to determine their English language level. In addition to attending their regular courses, students will attend small group ESL classes three to five times a week. The ESL Program focuses on language skills, curriculum content, and learning strategies. In time and with consistent work, students' English skills improve steadily as they are given the support they need to understand and interact in their classes and to reach their highest potential. Sacred Heart School of Halifax is very proud to be a multicultural school welcoming the diverse cultures of international students.
