New Milford Campus is Moving to Englewood!!

Get Ready for a Brand New Location for 2021-2022 School Year!

Two Locations

 

One Group

 

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.

Fast and Private Bus Service from / to Harlem and Washington Eights

In order to make it easier for them to join us, we have set up a private bus transportation service. The bus picks up students from Harlem and Washington Heights either door-to-door or central group stop service. It is a 25mn bus ride, with 15 spots available and a chaperon.

  • Cost for bus service :$500 per month,
  • Pick up in the morning : 7:30am – 7:45am

Our New Milford / Englewood Campus is a not-for-profit organization governed by a board. Consequently fundraising is essential and contributes to the financial resources of the school.

Also four board members compose the board and they are all parents of students:

  • Didier Amiel, Chair of the Board
  • Anne-Sophie Gueguen, Head of School Committee
  • Alain Pilet, Finance Committee
  • Juan Zuluaga, Fundraising Committee
