From French American Academy of Jersey City

The French American Academy (FAA) is a warm, nurturing, progressive school. FAA offers a child-centered environment that uses the dual lenses of French and English. As a result, our curriculum inspires and cultivates open-mindedness, empathy, and a lifetime love of learning.

At FAA, we combine the best of both educational systems and, with vigor and enthusiasm, create a path to excellence.

Our dynamic bilingual education is more than just becoming fluent in two languages. More importantly, it is about learning and challenging students through language. Our Native French and American teachers create a nurturing yet challenging environment that encourages students to flourish intellectually, emotionally and ethically. Students are also immersed in a rich, multilingual, and multicultural environment, giving them a unique and valuable learning experience.

We welcome students with or without French background, but interest in a rigorous curriculum and international experience is a must!
