Learning for Life

The French American Academy of Arizona provides a new opportunity for public school choice through our unique, proven successful, dual language immersion program. FrenchAm Academy is for:

  • Students seeking a full, dual-language immersion program
  • Students seeking a French-English dual language program
  • Students seeking a more rigorous, traditional, teacher-led program than their local school provides

Our full, dual language immersion program allows your child to complete Elementary school in both English and French at the same time. The fast pace is perfect for students who appreciate a challenge, Francophone students wishing to continue their studies in their native language, or families who want their children to leave Elementary school able to read, speak, write, and understand two top international languages.

FrenchAm students regularly outscore their peers in Arizona and France on standardized tests - and they do it having only half the amount of instructional time in each language.
