French Program

Bonjour! Parlez-vous Français?

Montessory Academy offers an intensive French Program for all students, even Preschoolers. Statistics show the best time to learn a 2nd language is during the early years (ages 1 - 6).

Our French teacher teaches all students in the school, from Preschool through 8th grade (ages 2½ - 14).

After our students have been with us Preschool -- Middle School, they are frequently able to test out of the first year of High School French, sometimes the second year as well.

  • French in PreschoolOur students start learning French in Preschool
  • French class with older studentsOlder students are able to converse, read, and write in French.
