The French American School of Arizona was created with the goal of bringing children the best of the standards of education of both the United States and the French academic programs.

Our school allows children to start their school path in both languages and discover both cultures at once.

At first, the emphasis is on teaching in French, by practicing full French immersion. This focus helps to set the foundation for learning a non-native language. Once the children reach Kindergarten and join the French American Academy of Arizona, the curriculum transitions to a balance between French and English to ensure that the children are always progressing in both languages.

Using this method prepares the children to enter the secondary cycle either in an American school or a French establishment. By then, children will be able to read, write, speak and understand English and French.
