A new after-school activity, with our partner the Fédération Française de Football

We are thrilled to propose you for the Fall a new soccer activity provided by our partner, the FFF. Together with the FFF we have designed a special program for the children at The École, depending on their grade.

The full year consists of 3 seasons: Fall, Winter and Spring. During the Fall and the Spring seasons, the sessions will be held outdoors at the FFF field on Randall’s Island, and during the Winter season, the sessions will be held indoors (Covid-permitting) at Soccer Roof in Brooklyn.

As we are heading to the 2021-2022 school year, we are happy to open the registration for the Fall season!
