Core French is offered from grades 5 through 12, typically by classroom teachers at the elementary level, and then usually by specialist teachers in the high schools. Participation in a second language program is required by the B.C. Ministry of Education from grades 5 through 8, though completion of second language coursework up to Grade 11 is recommended for entry to university. The focus of the Core French program is on building oral language and vocabulary in the early years, while at the high school level, grammar points are studied in more detail and further oral and written proficiency develops.

Southern Carrier is the language of the local Dakeln Carrier First Nations and is being offered at several schools.  All students attending Nazko Valley Elementary School (K-7) receive Carrier language instruction.  Students may also choose Carrier as their language option at both Quesnel Junior School (Grades 8-9) and Correlieu Secondary School (Grades 10-12).

When possible, and when demand is sufficient, Correlieu Senior Secondary also offers introductory Spanish and German, courses. The provincial curriculum for second languages recommends a communicative-experiential approach. It is now aligned with the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).  This curriculum is available for viewing at www.bced.gov.bc.ca/irp/welcome.php
