Bienvenue au Lycée Français de New York ! 

We are a bilingual independent co-educational day school for over 1,200 students from Nursery-3/Petite Section to Grade 12/Terminale on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, the Lycée is accredited by the New York State Association of Independent Schools and the State of New York. 

Though we receive no funding from the French government, we are also accredited by the French Ministry of Education and part of the Agency for French Education Abroad (AEFE), a network of 535 French schools in 139 countries. Throughout their time at the Lycée, students are prepared to graduate with both an American high school diploma and the renowned French Baccalauréat.
