Admission & Tuition
We thank you for your interest in our program - a one of its kinds in the Puget Sound area, but already well established in other US cities (New York, San Francisco, Boston, Houston,etc..) and other countries.
Learning a language is a family affair and with no doubt, an investment. Your support at home and your commitment to a good attendance are important for our program to be fully effective and successful.
Before enrolling, we encourage parents to become familiar with our education goals and philosophy. We invite you to come to our Open Houses, to read our "Classes" section or contact us for more information by using this form. This will help you to determine whether our program meets your short and long term goals around your child’s academic and personal growth needs.
SInce our classes are taught in a full immersion style - all speaking, reading, and writing is done in French - all our students must have a minimum of language skills in French. For all new students we'll schedule a pre-assessment session (in May/June). Our goal is to evaluate the kids' French proficiency and place them in the best group.
Our enrollment process is a 2 step process: pre-enrollment starts mid-March and enrollment should be finalized by mid July to avoid late enrollment fees. All forms and payments are completed online and are processed on a "1st come, 1st served" basis. Once classes are full, we will put any new application on a waiting list. We do not accept enrollment during the school year.

The tuition fee is a flat fee that includes educative materials and is for the whole academic year.
The amount is confirmed in June during the enrollment process. Payment schedule options will be provided and you will have the opportunity to select the payment option that works best for your family.
The tuition costs vary according to the annual budget. As a non-profit, our goal is to provide French classes a the most affordable cost without jeopardizing our viability. Tuition for the year 2017-2018 was at $1,600 with a $150 pre-enrollment fee.
