About The French American Academy Of Jersey City

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 children have attended FAA for many years. We love the focus on academics, sense of community, and diversity of the school. They provide a rigorous curriculum that challenges and inspires students to reach their full potential. The faculty and staff are highly qualified, passionate, and dedicated, and they work to ensure that each child receives personalized education and care. It provides a unique educational experience that prepares students for success in a global society while instilling values of empathy, compassion, and community. I highly recommend this school to any family looking for a quality education and a supportive learning environment for their children.

My daughter has attended the FAA since it opened in 2013, and she absolutely loves her school. The management team is very approachable, dynamic, and competent. The 3 sections, K/Pre-K, Elementary and Middle School are equally strong and provide children with a top-notch education, with in my opinion a level of cultural exposure and fully bilingual setting you will not find elsewhere. Why should you consider this school? For a French family it is a no-brainer. Half of the teachers come from France bringing with them the culture and teaching philosophy. The level is significantly above that of public schools in France. Even for French parents settled permanently in the US, why deny your child the chance to be completely fluent and be able to communicate in French with grand-parents back home? For American families, the English program is very rigorous, with advanced materials, and children are at no disadvantage vs those attending the best private schools in the area. 8th graders have gone on to some of the best high-schools in NY/NJ. As a bonus you will enjoy being connected with the international community of the FAA. And yes your child will be bilingual.

We are a French family , our kids were at the French school academy for 2 years (now we are going to move to a different country ) . I want any parents to know that the school was absolutely perfect for our kids and for us as parents . The team is doing an amazing job, the teacher and all the staff are really good with kids, not too many student per class , time to know each other, the ambience is really like family. Our kids came with no knowledge about English, they are able to speak now, and my daughter is correcting my French English ! I have no word to express my gratitude to the all team. We will miss you a lot

Our children are both 100% French and 100% American, and we wanted them to have the best of both worlds. I strongly believe the French American Academy is the right place for them to be. The curriculum is ambitious and unique, in a nurturing environment; it's been an exciting journey to follow the Jersey City school progresses and milestones towards much-deserved success! With so many talented teachers and staff, and such an enthusiastic community of parents coming from all around the world, in a city that was recently elected most diverse city in the US, our kids have been thriving there from Day 1.
