Academic Program

The French-American School of New York is an independent, coeducational day school serving over 870 students in Nursery through Grade 12. Accredited by the French Ministry of National Education, New York State Department of Education, and by the New York State Association of Independent Schools (NYSAIS), FASNY offers a rigorous bilingual, bicultural academic program in French and English.

FASNY’s academic program is challenging, adhering to both traditional American and official French curricula. This dual curriculum highlights the best of both the French and American education systems. 85% of the Faculty hold advanced degrees. Students are awarded a FASNY diploma and are prepared to pass the French Baccalaureate.

Uniquely American and International

FASNY’s community of families is roughly 47% American citizens, and 53% international or expatriate. FASNY families represent 45 nationalities. As the world grows more global, FASNY's mission embraces the need for broader cultural understanding. The School emphasizes the importance of appreciation and tolerance of diverse cultures.

FASNY Students

FASNY welcomes and values the diversity of its student body, and is committed to providing access to all qualified students, regardless of their economic situation, race, nationality or ethnicity. The School offers financial aid from Nursery through Grade 12.

FASNY’s success is not based solely upon its curriculum, but upon the community and character of the person it promotes. FASNY encourages its students to be active members of the community, both by example, and by providing and promoting various opportunities for community outreach.

FASNY graduates are bilingual, multi-cultural, well-rounded individuals.

Current Campuses

Since its founding in 1980, FASNY has evolved from a three teacher, 17-student nursery to a thriving school educating more than 870 students per year. FASNY is currently located on three rented facilities in Larchmont, Mamaroneck, and Scarsdale. For the past eight years, FASNY has been looking for a unified campus that could accommodate its existing three school divisions and allow for planned growth in the student population.
