We offer an unparalleled educational experience. Our community makes sure of it.

We are a not-for-profit international school, which means all revenue we receive goes into making our school even better. Knowing this is what inspires our culture of giving. When parents, grandparents, alumni, faculty, and friends give to our school, they know it will directly benefit our students and our community. Throughout the French American + International experience—from our global travel trips that solidify a student's bilingual ability, to our black-box theater where confidence blossoms, to our competitive and inclusive athletics, and beyond—every gift to our school truly matters, for a student today and for a generation of open, curious, and globally-minded leaders to come.

The Annual Fund

Participating in the Annual Fund is the most important way our parents can make a difference for their child and others. It is the most critical source of immediately available flexible funds and is crucial to the financial health of our school. Our Annual Fund allows us to be extraordinary, strengthening programs like global travel, field trips, teacher professional development, and financial aid. Make your gift online today! 

By giving to the Annual Fund, you are directly supporting the programs, faculty, and extracurriculars that are the cornerstone of our students’ educational experience. This year, our goal is to raise $1.6 million and reach 100% parent participation in the Annual Fund. Reaching 100% parent participation is a clear expression of our community’s investment in our school and our values: respect, integrity, inclusion, collaboration, and curiosity. Every gift matters. 

The Annual Auction

Our Annual Auction in the spring is a fun, semi-formal event to dine, dance, and bid in support of our school. It is our biggest party of the year! All proceeds from the evening support our students, our teachers, and our school. If you have questions about the event, please contact the Advancement Office.
