FSSA academic programs are based on a highly rigorous and globally respected French national curriculum and enhanced with active learning pedagogies and best practices in American education. Students are immersed into a bilingual experience and learn the same set of skills in French and English.
All members of the faculty teach in their native language. They believe in FSSA's fundamental principle: every child is capable of learning. That's why our teachers guide and encourage students to have confidence in their own ability to learn and succeed in school and beyond.
Our job is to create a space worthy of a miracle – our children! We aim to fill the space with love, kindness, and reverence to give our students the security and opportunity to discover themselves and the world. We also seek to provide them with varied experiences to foster their rapid brain development.
Building the foundation for students to become lifelong learners and responsible global citizens
At FSSA students are immersed in a bilingual experience; they acquire literacy and other academic skills in French and English.
The programs are based on the internationally respected French national curriculum and enhanced by the influence of active learning pedagogies.
Students are introduced to different activities that develop their intellectual, emotional, social, physical, artistic, creative and spiritual potentials.
Our balanced activity schedule includes 30-minutes rich recess time in the morning and afternoon, as well as an hour-long lunch time break for healthier eating habits.
Our internationally-oriented school teaches not only languages but also cultures, preparing students to become responsible global citizens with a multicultural perspective.
