The Lycee Francais de New York's mission is to prepare its students to be responsible citizens equipped for the world of tomorrow. To accomplish this, the School primarily and fundamentally relies on the French language, classical educational system and culture.
At the same time, the School provides a thorough understanding of American language and culture. Our teaching methods reflect both a traditional insistence on intellectual discipline as well as a respect for individual creativity and imagination.
Our mission comprises three basic objectives, each one equally crucial to our students' complete education:
Physical, psychological, and emotional equilibrium
By pursuing these objectives with a demanding and rigorous curriculum that includes a rich program of artistic and cultural activities, the LFNY endeavors to foster the development of independent, creative minds and a strong work ethic.
The LFNY promotes self-respect and the respect of others by following strict rules of conduct in a community spirit and with an acceptance of diversity.
