Welcome to The French American Academy !
Welcome and thank you for showing interest in The French American Academy. If you are here, you are considering an international education for your child.
What exactly is an International Education? It means being part of and being exposed to a melting pot of individuals, cultures, languages, concepts and ideas. In this environment, students are challenged to see the world through multiple perspectives and to ask big questions; how does the world work, how did we get here, and most importantly what this all means.
Our main objective is for our students to develop the knowledge and wisdom that will allow them to go on to live fulfilled lives of integrity, curiosity and purpose.
We thank you for visiting our website and we look forward to welcoming you at one of our campuses soon.
