LFSF Admissions Process: Relocating Families

Welcome to the Admissions Office !

There are many good options for you to choose from when it comes to international education in the San Francisco Bay Area. Choosing a private school, a bilingual program and an international community is a strategic and deliberate process that we congratulate you for starting now. 

Our admissions team will be there all the way to guide you, answer your questions and help you in making the right choice for your child and your family. 


Relocating is an exciting family project that can be stressful.
We are here to help!


From Gr1 and through to our high school, students need to have strong enough foundations and vocabulary in French to learn in French and successfully master the skills they will be introduced to. Therefore, students not currently enrolled in a French or an AEFE school will be required to take placement exams to assess their ability to thrive in our program.


Our admissions process continues on remotely. While access to our campuses is restricted during this time, please enjoy our virtual tour and make sure to reach out by email with any questions. Thank you!

LFSF, THE LOCAL reference in bilingual education

Providing Bay Area families with a high quality bilingual education, that’s our mission at LFSF! For over 50 years, LFSF has been leading the way in terms of multilingual education, and is the largest French American program in Northern California with an American  international section from Gr1 to High School. That's know how you can trust!


All experts agree: to optimize bilingualism, it is advised to start your child’s linguistic immersion early. At LFSF, it starts at age 2 with La Petite Ecole, in Sausalito and Ashbury. The Preschool program is the ideal way to gently prepare for school. The program continues on and concludes with LFSF High, a rigorous, international college prep. Over the past 5 yrs, on average, 50% of our seniors are LFSF Lifers!

We're here for you, All YEAR AROUND 

Life does not stop when the bell rings... and we also understand that our parents' calendar does not always match ours. This is the reason why LFSF offers a wide range of options in terms of services such as before and after daycare, 100+ after school activities, and a wide variety of fun camps during school breaks. We make sure to always have something fun to offer, all year around!
