School Notes

  • A leader in bilingual education, The French American Academy offers students a private education in both French and English.
  • The positive, nurturing, and creative learning environment blends traditional and progressive approaches with newer teaching techniques in order to promote greater cognitive and social growth, multi-cultural understanding, individual confidence and self-expression. An early and continuing bilingual education has been proven to strengthen a child`s fundamental ability to listen, reason, focus, multi-task, and communicate better. It also helps children perform better in non-language courses, like Math and Science. Finally, it promotes cultural fluency which helps children adapt more easily in today's global community.
  • The French American Academy serves students from Pre-K through 5th grade. The Academy also hosts after school activities in French, enrichment classes, summer programs for children and language classes for adults. The French American Academy has three campus locations: New Milford, Morris Plains, and Jersey City, New Jersey. http://www.faacademy.org

School Reviews

This is a no-brainer. I enrolled my daughter in kindergarden and by first grade she was fully fluent in French. She is now in third grade and people from France say her accent is perfect. Aside from all the studies that show that bi-lingual children's minds are more flexible, with the international perspective at FAA my daughter is cosmopolitain and views the world as her home. I can't say enough positive things about the French American Academy. I love it. FAA is amazing and I am so happy and proud that my daughter speaks French and English. She is now asking me to teach her more languages.
