Apply at the French American Academy and get immersion and long life advantages of learning another language at a young age. Both French speakers and Non French Speakers are welcome and benefit from the excellence of our curriculum.
Apply in 3 steps
Below is a three-step guide to our online admission process.
1- Online application
A non-refundable Application Fee of $140 is due per application. For students who are already attending a daycare or school, we will ask for a recommendation form to be filled out.
The Admissions Director will acknowledge receipt of your online application and will subsequently arrange for a private interview with both parents and the child. During the interview, you will meet with the Admissions Director and/or with the School Director to determine whether the school’s values, objectives and academic expectations are right for your child. This format will allow for plenty of questions. Depending on the age of your child, she/he may stay with you, join one of our classes or meet our pedagogical coordinator.
3. Notification of decision
The Admissions Director will notify the decision by email, at the latest by the end of February 2021. After that, it will be on a rolling basis.
The admission team remains at your disposition for any further questions and is looking forward to meeting with you
