A message from the Chairs of the Foundation and Society Boards of Directors

Dear CFIS Families: 

We would like to update the CFIS community on the anticipated summer 2018 parking lot/playing fields development and science lab renovations. On May 3, 2018, the members of the Calgary International Language Foundation, which owns the school and grounds leased to the Calgary French and International School Society, voted unanimously to approve a resolution allowing the Foundation Board to seek mortgage financing, in the amount of $2.3 million, to develop the 4.5 acres of vacant land to the immediate east of the school’s baseball diamond.

Independent Schools and the Public Good

The Association of Independent Schools and Colleges in Alberta (AISCA), of which CFIS is a member, produced two concise, straight-forward videos that address the importance of choice in education for Alberta parents and the benefits of maintaining provincial funding for independent schools. The videos are very informative and can be viewed on YouTube at the below weblinks:


Round Square schools are characterised by a shared belief in an approach to education based on six pillars, IDEALS, drawn from the theories of educator Kurt Hahn.

Internationalism: Students learn to see themselves as global citizens and to look beyond gender, class, race, nationality and culture to understand human nature.

The educational experience at CFIS

Dear CFIS Families, 

The purpose of this communication is to share information presented at the 
January 23rd Elementary Division parent information session, for those of you who were unable to attend, and to reaffirm some of the key advantages that you are providing your child through a CFIS French immersion education.
