Welcome to the French American Academy !

The French American Academy is an international, bilingual school with a warm, nurturing, and progressive mindset. A true international school, the French American Academy hosts more than 30 nationalities, which makes it almost as diverse as the United Nations. It is an academic and social environment like few others. We offer a child-centered environment that uses the dual lenses of French and English. As a result our curriculum inspires and cultivates open-mindedness, empathy and a lifetime love of learning.

At The French American Academy, we combine the best of both educational systems, and, with vigor and enthusiasm, create a path to excellence. If you’re learning about our school, we invite you to explore our website or go directly to our mission & values to know more. And if you’re already part of our family, thank you.

With warmth and gratitude,

Anne-Sophie Gueguen, Founder and Head of School
