It's a small school with personalized learning and dedicated teachers. Students are given many opportunities to excel with academic competitions, science fairs, Youth and Government, etc. They have a rigorous college prep program as opposed to only standardized test preparation common to many public schools.

I have 2 daughters at Governor French Academy (ages 8 & 5). Both girls were enrolled at age 4, so we've been a part of the school for several years now. I can honestly say that we absolutely love & appreciate the faculty & curriculum at GFA! The teachers are focused on providing the best education possible & I can see the progress in my children's learning & progress. I highly recommend this school!
