An Open Mind Can Change the World!
 
The French American School of Puget Sound (FASPS) inspires the next generation of global citizens to learn, understand, and act wisely in a multicultural world. Students achieve bilingual fluency in a rigorous academic program that combines the best philosophies of both the French and American educational systems. We teach students to view the world from a multicultural perspective, to participate actively in a diverse community that celebrates differences, and to rise to the challenges of a singular academic program accredited by both the French Ministry of National Education and the Northwest Association of Independent Schools (NWAIS).
 
Students are not required to speak French before first grade, and students who enter FASPS with no French or English receive individualized language acquisition support. Students who will be 2 years old by December 31, 2022, are eligible to apply for admission to FASPS for the 2022–2023 academic year. Students who will be 18 months by September 1, 2023, are eligible to apply for admission to FASPS for the 2023–2024 academic year.
 
Thank you, and we look forward to learning more about your family!
