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.
