The École is extending its scholarship program so that even more families can offer high-quality, truly bilingual education to their children.

For the 2022-2023 academic year, The École will allocate $1.5 million to enable more students to benefit from its unique dual French-American curriculum.

The École has decided to widen its scholarship offering because of the growing need and demand for high-quality bilingual education in New York City.

The École, which doubled the surface of its Elementary and Middle School Building in January 2020, can now welcome more children, enabling it to launch this generous scholarship program. 

The École scholarship program is awarded according to three main criteria:

  • Financial need
  • Diversity 
  • Merit

“We, like many parents, know the value of bilingual education. This is why The École would like to empower families to provide truly bilingual education for their children,” explain Philippe and Laurence Roux, The École Benefactors. “Our signature French-American dual program, which really goes beyond bilingual through the artful blending of both the French and American curricula, prepares students for the next step in their education, whether that is in a public or private school, here in the US, in France or abroad.”

An average of 20% of families at The École will receive financial assistance through The École scholarship program. The program is open to every family, regardless of their citizenship, and can be a complement to the grants provided to French citizens attending accredited schools by the French government through the Consulate in New York.
