The French American Academy is now a group composed of two locations, serving students from Pre-K2 through Middle School. Indeed the French American Academy Group offers one curriculum across campuses and is led by the Head of School, Anne-Sophie Gueguen.
Next through the years, women and men, seasoned education professionals of different professional backgrounds have joined the French American Academy, motivated by the same objective – providing a bilingual program of excellence within a safe and nurturing environment.
Also, the Statue of Liberty is a common icon to both campuses as it is 2 miles away from our Jersey City school and 10 miles from our New Milford school.
It is true that the Statue of Liberty is a symbol to many. But for us, women and men working at the French American Academy it is a symbol of wisdom, freedom, a beacon of hope for a bright future. In short, we are proud of this proximity to the Statue of Liberty since it was a gift from France to America. Indeed the Statue of Liberty reflects the special relationship between the two countries and beyond this, the universalism of our mission.
