***College Credit is not offered for summer 2023.

Concordia Language Villages will require all participants eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine to be fully vaccinated prior to arrival at a residential session, effective September 1, 2021. Read our vaccine FAQ for more information.​

Advanced high-school students with well-established French language skills may apply for the four-week college credit program at Lac du Bois through which they will learn from a qualified professor and earn college credit in French literature (four credits) from Concordia College that can then be transferred to the student’s college or university of choice.

To set these villagers up for success, they must demonstrate the ability to read, discuss and write about literature in French before admission is granted. For many years this class has focused on African literature, including novels and poetry. This theme is likely to continue. This program runs alongside the high school credit program and, outside of formal class time, participants in this program will join the same activities as the high school credit villagers.

Students must be entering grades 11-12 (not yet a fully enrolled college student) with three years of language study.

How to Apply

Unlike our high school credit or language immersion sessions, participants who would like to enroll in the college credit session must apply and be accepted. Learn more about the application requirements for our college credit programs.
