Overview

French dual language programs offer bilingual education and an exceptional multicultural learning environment to children in public schools across the United States. With classes conducted in both French and English, these programs draw from the best educational models that both countries have to offer. 

In recent years, demand for French dual language education in the United States has been on the rise. Today, more than 29,000 students benefit from a public bilingual education with more than 150 French dual language programs in 88 cities nationwide.
