“Mens sana in corpore sano”
The French American Academy values the importance of a healthy lifestyle and promotes exercise and balanced nutrition.
Teamwork and effort are not only emphasized in the classroom but also on the fields.
Soccer is a very important part of the FAA Life, with 5 teams playing in the Fall. Our students won two championships :
