BIENVENUE À L'ÉCOLE FRANCO-AMÉRICAINE CHARTER
French-American Charter School (SRFACS) families are committed to supporting our Teachers and Staff in providing a strong academic curriculum in French and English. We are a diverse community of individuals who share a common goal; to develop bilingual and bi-literate world citizens. As a public school, SRFACS does not charge tuition. However, like other public schools in California, SRFACS relies on parent and community donations to support school programs. Family and friends of SRFACS are encouraged to stay informed and get involved!
A Community of World Class Educators
At SRFACS we enjoy the unique distinction of being 1 of only 5 French-immersion public schools in North America to also be accreditated by the Agency of French Education Abroad (AEFE). The majority of our teaching staff are French Nationals, with credentials from the French Ministry of Education. Many members of our faculty and staff are also a part of the parent community with children currently enrolled. SRFACS students receive the best in French and American education.
EDUCATING WORLD CITIZENS
Why Bilingual Education?
This video examines the value of a bilingual education, exploring why younger children have a superior ability to learn a second language. Considering research from Eric Lenneberg, Ellen Bialystok, among others, it also looks at why bilingual students are better speakers, better thinkers, better learners, have superior focus, score higher on tests, and are better citizens of the world.
The SRFACS Parent Association Foundation (PAF) is a nonprofit corporation that serves as the parent association. PAF has been established to raise funds and organize volunteers to help achieve the goals established in the charter as well as meet the needs of students and teachers.
The suggested family donation to fully support school goals and objectives is $700 per student, per school year. While donations are not a requirement of attending SRFACS, contributions in any amount are appreciated as well as critical to our school’s success.
Tax-deductible donations and pledges can be paid by check or credit card. You may opt to charge the same amount to your credit card on a monthly basis. SRFACS Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Our tax ID 45-5359406
