Applying to LFSF

4 SIMPLE STEPS

It is our objective to make the admission process as enjoyable as possible. At any time of this process, make sure to contact us if you have question or concern: we are here to help!

An on-going application process

Although the original application deadline was JAN 8, we welcome your application at any time. However, we may not be able to consider your child's application during the first round of acceptations. If so, it will be reviewed in an on-going process in the following weeks.

The Admissions Calendar

There are no events to display

1. Submit your application

You are ready to submit your application? That's terrific!

Begin by clicking here.

Please note that all required application materials for 2018-2019 need to be submitted by January 8th, 2018. Your $100 application fee will be processed online at the time of application.

Once you have submitted the application you will receive a list of additional required documents.

2. Schedule your visit

This meeting is an opportunity for you to share with us about your child, your educational goals, what it is that you are seeking in a school and how this might align with our program. Of course, this also is an excellent time to ask any questions that you may have about the admissions process or our school.

Visits with the admissions team are held on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Once the application is received, a team member will contact you to schedule your visit.

3. Time to Come and Play

Your child will be invited to join one of our play sessions at our Sausalito campus over the months of January and February.

This play session is required and scheduled upon invitation once your application is complete.

For students applying to our French Language Immersion (FLI) program, a one-on-one observation and placement exam will be scheduled at your convenience once you have submitted your application.

For all applicants applying to grades 9-12 who have not been attending an AEFE French Language Immersion school, a placement exam will be scheduled at your convenience.

4. It's Decision Time

We will send out notification of our admission decisions in early March, based on a calendar agreed upon with the other private schools of the Bay Area. These dates vary by grade.

Please refer to our admissions calendar to check when we send out admissions decisions and when we need to have yours!

ENROLLMENT FEES

Please refer to our enrollment fees to prepare for this important commitment.

NOT YET IN THE BAY AREA? NOT TO WORRY

Our application process will be slightly different than the one described above to better adjust to your situation. And we are only an email away to answer your questions!

WHAT GRADE SHOULD WE APPLY FOR

This chart will help you identify the right grade for your child. You will note that our system has different cut off dates as we consider the year of birth (calendar year) not the American academic year for admissions.
