Summer International Languages Registration has been temporarily suspended!

Currently our registration for the IL Elementary Summer Program is suspended due the COVID-19 school closure.  At this point, we can not clearly communicate that our summer programs will run. A directive from the Waterloo Catholic School Board about summer programs will be determined in May.

International Languages Elementary Summer Program is available to children who are currently attending Junior Kindergarten/ Year 1 Kindergarten through to Grade 8.

**Note: We can only accept children who will be four years old by July 6, 2020.  Your child must be 4 years old at the start of the program. We cannot accept 3 year old students into the Summer IL program.
