How to apply
It is our goal to provide each family that applies to Lycee Français de San Francisco ample opportunity to become well-acquainted with our program and community. We are also very interested in getting to know your family and learning as much as we can about your child’s unique personality and gifts.
This chart will help you identify the grade your child can apply for.
Our Open House series provides prospective parents with an exciting opportunity to learn more about the benefits and strengths of our programs, enjoy a guided tour with a Parent/Guardian Ambassador and meet members of our school leadership, faculty and admissions team who will be happy to answer your questions.
All application materials should be submitted by January 15th, 2017.

Every *new* family applying their son or daughter to LFSF is required to complete a parent interview as a part of the application process.
Interviews are held on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays beginning October 18 through January 13, at our office in Sausalito.
This interview is an opportunity for you to share with us about your child, your educational goals, what it is that you are seeking in a school and how this might align with our program. Of course this is also an excellent time to ask any questions you may have about the admissions process or our school. We look forward to getting to know you better!
Families applying from abroad will be interviewed via Skype.
Families who already have a child enrolled at LFSF are NOT required to complete a parent interview when applying subsequent children.
For all local applicants: your child will be observed by a faculty member for 45 minutes, at our Sausalito campus on either Jan 28, Fev 4 or Fev 9 between 9 am and 4 pm. Your family will be assigned a date and given further instructions once you have submitted all other application materials.)
For all those applying to our French Language Immersion (FLI) program, a one-on-one observation and placement exam will be scheduled at your convenience once you have submitted your application.
- For all applicants applying to Grades 9-12 who have not been attending an AEFE French Language Immersion school, a placement exam will be scheduled at your convenience.
