In keeping with the LFSF mission of empowering future generations to make meaningful contributions to our world through a multilingual and multicultural education, LFSF offers students many opportunities to immerse themselves in cultures, languages, and geographies through a global travel program that provides them with a rich understanding of different cultural perspectives than that can only be achieved by spending time living, learning and working in a foreign country.
MANY DESTINATIONS, MANY POSSIBILITIES
Global learning starts early, with local outings. In grade 5, travels to France and Quebec enables students to put their knowledge of the French language into practice and immerse themselves in French and Quebec cultures. Through the grades, opportunities and destinations multiply while time spent abroad extends from a week to a quarter. The large international network of French high schools (AEFE) allows LFSF to set up "study abroad" exchanges, comparable to the university programs with Lycées in Tokyo (Japan), Brest (France), Taipei (Taiwan), Rome (Italy), Valencia (Spain) and Buenos Aires (Argentina). Additionally, students in grades 10, 11, and 12 can participate each year in the HS service learning program once they have completed 40 hours of local community service. It is a 3-year program, and each year focuses on a different theme and global location.
