Applying to the Lycée
The application process starts in the Fall one year prior to the school year being applied for. Those families interested in applying to the Lycée are encouraged to attend one of the open houses.
Every child who turns 4 in the calendar year of 2017 is eligible for a pre-K spot in September 2017. Please note that applications for 2017-2018 must be submitted online.
In evaluating an applicant, we consider a number of factors, including whether the student would thrive in and benefit from the academic challenges of an enriched bilingual curriculum, the preservation of the school’s multicultural diversity, the parents’ commitment to education and the school’s program, whether the applicant is a returning student, French expatriate moving to New York, sibling of an enrolled student, or child of an alumnus, teacher or staff member, and any other qualities that the applicant might bring to enrich the life of the school and its students. It is not possible to prioritize or weigh how these factors might be applied in a particular case. We recognize that every applicant is unique. However, every successful candidate is likely to exhibit some combination of these qualities.
The Lycée Français de New York reviews all completed applications received by the appropriate deadlines. There is no priority in the order in which an application was received, but the earlier it is received, the sooner the parents will be given the necessary appointments.
