English as a Second Language

The Renfrew County District School Board (RCDSB) offers programs to assist newcomers to Canada. English as a Second Language (ESL) programs are offered with certified ESL instructors through Continuing and Community Education. The program locations vary depending on the community's needs. We have offered courses in Deep River and Pembroke. ESL programs are free and we have a continuous intake registration process.

International Language Program

The RCDSB also offers an after school international language program for elementary students. This is a free program for school age children from Kindergarten to Grade 8. The program runs after school for 2.5 hours per week. Program offerings, dates and times are based on sufficient registrants.
