Your student is planning on coming alone

Lycée Français de San Francisco challenges students by providing them with new and diverse perspectives within a global context. We believe that studying abroad goes hand in hand with immersion education and therefore we encourage international High School students to apply.

We are available to speak with you about this exciting opportunity and can easily schedule Skype conversations during the later phases of the admission process.

We recognize that the administrative procedures and the amount of paperwork necessary to live and study in the U.S. can be daunting. Feel free to contact us , we are here to help!


International students coming on their own will be responsible for finding a host family.


LFSF will request the student visa for the student coming alone. Enrollment of a student who does not have a parent/guardian residing in the United States requires payment of the tuition in full prior to receipt of his/her student visa.
