About Our Program

This summer, we are staying safe and keeping our programs online.

With our native French-speaking teachers, varied and engaging curriculum, and quality online educational resources, our virtual summer program is the perfect way to improve your child's skills and confidence in the French language. We have fun and creative classes for children who are new to the French language, for children with prior experience, and for children at a native or bilingual level.

The summer program will run on a weekly basis over the course of 8 weeks. You can sign up for 1 or more weeks at a time, and each week will include an optional activity packet with the materials needed for the week’s lessons. All online classes have a maximum of 6 students to ensure one-on-one interaction with the teachers, so children can build confidence in a nurturing, engaging, and enriching environment.
