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 in the French-American track.
French as a Second Language instruction is available throughout the curriculum, therefore, non-French-speaking applicants may be admitted at any level in the International track.

Francis Gianni became the sixth head of the French-American School of New York last fall, which gave him just enough time to settle in, get to know the community, and spend time on all three school campuses before the arrival of Covid-19.
“What can I say? It was baptism by fire,” said Gianni in an interview this week. He said he and the staff remained focused on the heart of their mission: “ensuring the well-being of our students by building critical thinking, motivation, and confidence. We do it through involving them in projects. And we involve the parents from the start, ‘training’ them to help us verify that our curriculum is having the desired impact and that their children are truly learning.”
On Wednesday, we were pleased to welcome Consul General Jérémie Robert from the Consulate of France in New York.
