The LFNY’s mission is to prepare its students to be responsible citizens equipped for the world of tomorrow. To accomplish this, the school relies on the French language, classical educational system, and culture. Beginning in first grade, French is the main language of instruction, and the school essentially follows the program of the French Ministry of National Education. In parallel, students are provided with a comprehensive and thorough American language and culture program comparable to that of top-level American private schools. It is the blending of these two programs with qualified teachers dedicated to our mission that distinguishes the LFNY.

Our teaching methods reflect both the traditional French insistence on intellectual discipline and the American traditions of pragmatism and respect for individual creativity and imagination.

Our students benefit from small classes and assistance to bolster language skills. This ensures that they can easily enter or re-enter the French and American systems at will.

Educational Objectives

Our mission comprises three basic objectives, each one equally crucial to our students’ complete education:

  • Academic Excellence
  • Physical, psychological, and emotional balance
  • Responsible citizenship.

By pursuing these objectives with a demanding and rigorous curriculum that includes a rich program of artistic and cultural activities, the LFNY endeavors to foster the development of independent, creative minds and a strong work ethic. The LFNY promotes self-respect and respect of others by following strict rules of conduct in a community spirit and with an acceptance of diversity.
