At San Diego French-American School, we open the door of opportunity for budding young minds. Our students thrive in a challenging environment designed to foster autonomy and to teach them to adapt to new cultures and new languages. They develop in an international setting surrounded by children of 46 different nationalities who speak 20 different languages.
In a rigorous curriculum, administered in both French and English, students become well prepared to meet the challenges of high school and college, whether in a French school abroad, an international baccalaureate program, or a college-prep high school. Your child could be the next one from SDFAS to win a national French contest, earn the prestigious IB diploma, graduate from an Ivy League university, or teach English abroad.
Combining the best of both the French and American systems of education, SDFAS provides your children the foundation they need to succeed in an American, French or international high school. The blend of a highly qualified faculty and the experience of a proven curriculum give SDFAS the edge among local educational institutions.
No knowledge of French is necessary to apply. We are accepting incoming students with no prior exposure to French at any level. Preschoolers will live a full immersion experience and learn quickly. Starting in 1st grade and through middle school students with no or very little French skills will blossom thanks to our Fluency Transition Program tailored to accompany motivated learners with strong academics.
We invite you to discover the benefits of San Diego’s premier bilingual school.
Our students are multi-lingual, multi-talented, world ready!
