Label FrancEducation ▾
A seal of quality for French dual language education

Label FrancEducation: A seal of quality for dual language programs 

Awarded by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs through its Agency for French Education Abroad, the Label FrancEducation is an official international accreditation granted to schools offering a French bilingual program.

To date, 61 American schools have been recognized (out of a total of 523 worldwide). The United States is the second largest network of Label FrancEducation schools globally, after Spain. 


To apply for accreditation, schools must meet a set of rigorous criteria: A minimum of 20% of subjects must be taught in French; teachers must be highly qualified, certified, and fluent in French; the school must have a strong professional development plan and a commitment to quality education; it must participate in official language tests; and it must provide an environment that inspires an interest in French culture.
