About The French American Academy Of Englewood

The French American Academy (FAA) is a warm, nurturing, progressive school. FAA offers a child-centered environment that uses the dual lenses of French and English. As a result, our curriculum inspires and cultivates open-mindedness, empathy, and a lifetime love of learning.

At FAA, we combine the best of both educational systems and, with vigor and enthusiasm, create a path to excellence.

Our dynamic bilingual education is more than just becoming fluent in two languages. More importantly, it is about learning and challenging students through language. Our Native French and American teachers create a nurturing yet challenging environment that encourages students to flourish intellectually, emotionally and ethically. Students are also immersed in a rich, multilingual, and multicultural environment, giving them a unique and valuable learning experience.

We welcome students with or without French background, but interest in a rigorous curriculum and international experience is a must!

My 2-year-old son has been enrolled at The French American Academy of New Milford for the past 3 months and I have seen a great improvement in his social, physical, language and cognitive development. Most importantly, the FAA community is rich in culture and diversity, which I believe will help the children in their future integration to the outside world. The FAA staff is friendly and available for any questions. We feel very lucky and grateful to have the opportunity to be part of the FAA family. Thank you!

My son is extremely shy and I was afraid that he may be left behind in a public school. I made the right choice by choosing the FAA. My son feels comfortable in the small size classrooms and is learning at a tremendous pace. He now speaks English, French and Spanish fluently and have forged great friendships with his classmates. I am so happy with the school and thankful for all the wonders they have accomplished with my son!!!

A bit of a hidden gem, as not many people know of its existence, The FAA is the perfect school for my sons for many reasons. First, because I am francophone, and always wanted my children to be fluent in both oral and written French–the school makes this possible. Second, because of the small classes, which gives a feeling of belonging to a big "family", with lots of personal attention. Third, the quality of all the teachers, including art and PE. The principals know each student, and are always open to suggestions and special requests. There are lots of after school activities, outings, etc. School lunch is delicious and healthy. Students are taught about recycling, composting, as well as other cultures and backgrounds–it's very international. We love it.

Small class size and very attentive teachers. The school operates like a small community. The school is sensitive and very responsive to child allergies and that is very important to me. My son started the school at age 2 already fully understanding French, however, he did not speak it back. Being fully immersed in this environment has gotten him to a place where he is comfortable speaking the language and at 3 he is actually speaking both English and French, knows who to speak which language to and can even translate for me (non-French speaker). The school also keeps up with technology, there's an app where the teachers post often and there's a communication weekly letting us parents know what the focus is for the week. I'm very pleased with the school.

My 3 children have all been a part of the French American Academy of New Milford since the beginning. My two older children (ages 14 & 11) attended the after-school program and learned a tremendous amount. My youngest (age 6) is a full time student who began in Pre-K 2 and is currently in 1st grade. Not only is she completely fluent in French, but she is learning about the French culture on a daily basis. American traditions are also recognized as the school is truly bilingual. I really like the hands on approach to learning, the bilingual academics, the high level of art education, the variety of athletics the children are exposed to, and the lunch program is cool too! My daughter is willing to try new things and is open minded about food in great extent to the school's varied & healthy menu. The teachers and staff are great and they give a lot of personal attention to everyone. Last but not least, the international community of parents & children is a big plus too. We will be back next year!
