Universal Themes, Two Languages
FrenchAm Academy provides a comprehensive core curriculum in both French and English simultaneously from which teachers build and expand on the universal themes selected for a given month or year in order to align our educational philosophy with Arizona State and French National Ministry of Education standards. Monthly themes include the Earth, Our Oceans, Helping Professions, How Food Gets to our Tables, and many others.
Traditional and Inclusive
FrenchAm Academy is a teacher-led learning environment where traditional literacy skills begin early. Our students learn poetry to enrich their vocabulary, learn proper pronunciation, and to develop their memory. In Kindergarten, our students begin to learn to write clearly in cursive, a skill proven important for brain development.
FrenchAm Academy’s culturally rich and diverse environment enables students to learn about and demonstrate a high level of respect and curiosity for differences and other cultures. Our Social Studies curriculum, for example, enables students to have a strong understanding of world history and geography while they learn and grow alongside students from other neighborhoods, states, and countries.
