AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM

The AFC After School Program, a part of our educational efforts to share French language and culture, has served Albemarle County and Charlottesville City Schools since 2009. Lead by a dedicated team of passionate and enthusiastic teachers, it welcomes more than a hundred elementary and middle schools students every semester.

Our unique program focuses on active communication and hands-on learning. Students do not stay seated on a chair while repeating grammar rules! For one hour every week, the language is learnt through engaging activities such as games, crafts, cooking sessions, songs, role play etc. No prerequisite required.

A new topic is introduced every semester so students have a chance to enlarge their vocabularies and knowledge about French speaking countries cultures. List of topics currently offered includes the following: Let’s go to Paris, A road trip to Normandy and Brittany, Festivals in the French speaking world, Let’s build a French city. Also available - every Spring a 4 sessions program focused on Art.

! NEW Fall 2019 ! Let’s cook in French! with an exclusive new curriculum based on the most famous French recipes. Our students will be able to learn and prepare the most famous French sweet and savory specialties!
