Welcome to The French Académie

Welcome to
The French Académie!

At The French Académie, we provide a private language-enriched environment for every student in an energetic and friendly setting. Our high quality academic approach spurs our students’ creativity and facilitates a fun and challenging learning experience.

Our French Immersion Early Childhood Center is unique in the Twin Cities; we are the only educational program in Minnesota accredited by the French Ministry of Education (cycle 1), and the only language-immersion programs made up of only French native-speaking teachers.

We pride ourselves on our low student-to-teacher ratio, which allows teachers to tailor the curriculum to each students’ individual learning abilities. Within our programs, we cater to a wider age range giving your family more options. Empower your children to join the 270 million people in the world who speak French!

Our Programs

The educational programs at The French Académie were created with our children’s needs in mind: to mature and develop in a safe yet stimulating environment. Take a look below to learn more about each program.

Our Philosophy

Montessori inspiration, music integration, and French immersion! Our cultivated educational curriculum combines the play-based theories of Montessori practice and Music Together Worldwide with an academic foundation from the French curriculum. Our Programs focus on enriching all aspects of early childhood development, where bilingual learning is just the beginning.

"Our experience at The FAC is about dual language learning but so much more! We know that our son is receiving an education that provides him with the best combined strength of the French and American education systems. This is a unique opportunity for him to truly be a world citizen. And he has fun while doing it."
