At the prep school level, our students receive six semesters of French as a third language. Successful completion of that course entitles them to a Common European Framework of Reference DELF B1 and B2 certificate, internationally recognized and required for admission to French universities or into French businesses.
France has prestigious universities such as the Sorbonne and others that offer scholarships at the Masters and doctorate levels in different fields. The French language is an analytical tongue that helps to structure thought and develop a critical spirit. It is one of the main languages of diplomacy and business in the world.
