Tuition and other fees

The gift of bilingualism for your child at Lycee Français de San Francisco, we believe to be one of the best immersion schools in the Bay area is an investment to the development of a global citizen that our world needs today.

Together with our faculty, staff, parents and Board of Trustees, our goal is to provide minimal tuition increases each year as we align with our increasing operational costs and to stay competitive compared to other independent schools.

We are excited to provide financial aid to over 20% of our families.  Our commitment to families is to ensure affordability and equitable options for a student to thrive at LFSF.  Over the past five years we have increased our financial aid budget year over year.
