Dear Prospective Parents,
Thank you for looking into the admissions process at The French American Academy.
As our motto suggests, our bilingual education creates international citizens. Indeed, bilingualism offers many lifelong benefits. For instance, it builds curiosity and better cognitive skills. Above all, it provides an open mind as well as an ability to better connect with others. In a growingly complex and globalized world, parents must assess how the education they choose for their children prepares them to face the future.
Enrolling at the French American Academy will put them on the right path to start the journey of life.
This page will provide you with helpful information regarding the enrollment process. We hope that our International Bilingual School will be a good match for your child and your family. We hope to see you soon.
