Tuition and other fees

Giving your child the gift of bilingualism in one of the best immersion school of the Bay Area is your priority. It is also an investment in a region where the cost of living is remarkably high.

It has been the objective of our Board of Trustees to limit tuition increase and closely align it with our operational costs therefore keeping them below most private schools in the Bay Area.

In addition, LFSF has purposely increased its scholarship budget over the last five years and we are happy to report that close to 20% of our families can benefit from some level of financial aid.


Lycée Français de San Francisco is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization registered with the State of California and accredited by the French government, as well as by CAIS (California Association of Independent Schools), and WASC (Western Association of Schools and Colleges).
