General admission information

In the interest of a positive educational experience for our students, the family’s demonstrated interest in and commitment to FASNY’s mission is critical.

  • We strongly encourage all families to apply for admission as early as possible in their child’s education in order to maximize the benefits of our bilingual program.
  • Because space is limited in Pre-Kindergarten, we strongly recommend that local francophone families apply to enroll their children in Nursery.
  • Because of limited enrollment at each grade level, we are unable to accept all qualified applicants, and therefore maintain a wait list.
  • The French-American School of New York is a day School, not a boarding School. FASNY does not enroll applicants wishing to pursue their last years of High School in New York without their families.
  • English as a Second Language instruction is available throughout the curriculum, therefore, non-English-speaking applicants may be admitted at any level.

Student Interviews

Student Evaluations

Following the French Ministry of Education’s policies, prospective students registered in a school accredited by the French Government are admitted on the basis of school records and teacher recommendations. In some cases, the French-American School of New York will contact the Director or teachers of the applicant's school for further information.

In the case of children who live in the New York area, or those visiting the area, an evaluation to determine placement is also customary.

Applicants from Grades One through Twelve applying from a non-accredited school must take an entrance exam in French and Math. High school applicants are also asked to take a Science exam. For applicants living abroad, the exams will be administered by a local appointed administrator.
