Welcome to the Lycée Français de San Francisco

Lycée Français de San Francisco (LFSF) was founded in San Francisco in 1967 by a group of parents/guardians and teachers to provide a French program of education adhering to the highly respected curriculum of France’s national education. Classes were originally held in the basement of the Orthodox Church on Geary Street with a total enrollment count of 20 students. In its early years LFSF moved to Fort Mason, and eventually purchased its own building on Balboa Street.

In 1986, The French School of Marin merged with the Lycée, adding a Marin County campus  for students in preschool through Grade 5. In 1996, LFSF moved to 755 Ashbury Street, where we currently welcome students preschool Grade 5. In 2006, our middle and high school moved to 1201 Ortega Street, a newly renovated facility.

There are currently over one thousand students enrolled on three campuses. The Lycée Français de San Francisco is fully accredited by the French government, the California Association of Independent Schools (CAIS), and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). Additionally, we are one of two schools in the country under French government contract.

Our students earn an American high school diploma while preparing to take the French Baccalaureate and are therefore extremely qualified to apply for admission in the most prestigious colleges and universities in the United States and abroad.
