Journey the world with Chicago's French International School. At LFC, we believe a good education is the beginning of a successful lifelong journey. Our focus on academic excellence and language immersion empowers students to break down the barriers ahead of them. Our inclusive, pluricultural community not only introduces our students to what this world has to offer, but also enables them to be an active part of it.

Driven by our core values of respect, responsibility and the joy of learning, the unique LFC approach prepares all students, from pre-K through 12th grade, in French Baccalaureate and International Baccalaureate tracks, to thrive around the world with confidence. This is the beginning of the journey to a successful life. And it’s our mission to make sure it’s a good one.

No background in French is required for most grades, but interest in an international experience is a must!
