Visit Campus

The best way to learn about our program is by visiting our campus. Prospective parents are highly encouraged to attend an Open House.

French American Lower School (Preschool - Grade 5)

Open Houses for preschool, prekindergarten and kindergarten through grade five give prospective parents the opportunity to learn about our program, meet current parents, faculty and administrators, and tour the campus. Lower School Open Houses are held three times a year. A Q & A session is offered at the end of each event to address questions about immersion education, the curriculum and various programs offered at the French American Lower School. Each event starts at 9 AM and runs until 11 AM, no registration required.
