Language Department

Students must graduate with the ability to use English effectively for thinking, learning, and communicating. Therefore, students are required to earn four credits in English (one for each grade), and to meet the provincial secondary school literacy graduation requirement.

French provides students with the opportunity to become bilingual in the two official languages of Canada. Students are required to earn at least one credit in French as a second language to graduate. Students may also count two additional French credits as compulsory credits towards their diploma. Holy Cross' Core French programs can achieve the mandatory French requirement.
