Our Mission

To offer a European Bilingual program


Inspired by the programs of the French Ministry of Education, our bilingual curriculum offers rigor and enrichment.

From preschool to 6th grade


We welcome students in cycles that each cover three school years and never assign more than 10 students per teacher.

At a reasonable cost


We serve all francophone or francophile populations and keep our tuition fees simple and reasonable.  We never charge a supply fee or do any fundraising.

Facilities for all ages

Less than 15 minutes from the Gold Coast, off Lake Shore Drive, our school is by the 53rd exit.  That makes us neighbors with the University of Chicago and the Museum of Science and Industry.

The park outside the school includes a playground, and basketball and tennis courts.


Our programs

In cycle 1 (the three kindergarten grades) we maintain a full French immersion environment.  Then, bilingual instruction is introduced (adapted to the needs of each child). 


Methods et structure

Our students are organized by cycle (of three years each) and receive differentiated instruction. This is only possible because we never assign more than 10 students per teacher.
