Accelerated French Program

Unlock the Full Potential of Bilingualism

Are you looking to give your child the benefits of a second language and culture while challenging them in a supportive learning environment?

The French Accelerated Program is designed to challenge and prepare students for a rigorous education. Our program offers two tracks: an elementary school and an elementary school track. The elementary school track gives students an opportunity to learn French and join the bilingual program in middle school. The middle school track provides students with a strong foundation in French.

The French Accelerated Program is a separate academic program for students with limited or no French knowledge. 

The Benefits of the French Accelerated Program

Individualized Attention

Our small class sizes give students the individualized support they need to succeed

Rigorous
Academics

Students not only learn a new language more effectively than in a traditional public school but also experience the rigor of two curricula at the same time. 

International Perspectives

Students become not just bilingual but bicultural. They are exposed to a diverse and international community, giving them the opportunity to gain two unique perspectives.

Curriculum

Schedule  

In the French Accelerated Program, students receive accelerated French language classes and participate weekly in physical education, art, and music classes, which are also taught in French. For classes taught in English, such as Math and English, students in the French Accelerated Program join their bilingual track peers.

Native French-speaking teachers teach all French language classes. In addition to these classes, students also participate in cultural activities like cooking classes, art projects, and field trips. These activities help to enrich the student’s learning experience and deepen their understanding of the French language and culture in a real-world context.
