Presentation | Download

Whether you have been with Lycée for the past 10 years or just joined the Lycée community this year, this session will help you better understand the school’s complex academic identity: a Louisianan public school and a French school, accredited by the French Ministry of Education.

Some of the questions addressed in this session include:
•What does it mean to be a French-American school?
•What is the difference between a French immersion program and a French accredited school?
•What are the non-negotiable of the French and the Louisiana systems and their impact on academics?
•What does our academic program look like overall from preK4 to 12th grade?
•What are the different pathways in High school?

Host a French-Speaking LFNO Intern!

Did you know that Lycée Français is partnering with the Amity Institute to provide 6 Amity Interns in our schools this upcoming year?
Founded in 1962, the Intern program is based on the belief that language learning and cultural exchange are essential to building international friendships within our global community. Interns are here to bring their languages and cultures to life, to engage and motivate students and leave them with new confidence in their ability to communicate across borders
The Interns have varied educational backgrounds and will be assisting at Lycée for approximately 32 hours a week and play a flexible role in the classrooms. Interns participate in a wide variety of activities such as assisting the teachers with lessons/group work, conducting cultural presentations, and developing materials for student instruction.
As part of their experience, Interns live with a local host family. We are currently seeking host families from the Lycée to support this program. Interns will be here from the end of July 2021 until the end of May 2022 and we are currently seeking families who would be interested in hosting. Interns will also need to be transported to school for the days of professional development with a bagged lunch from August 2nd-August 12th.
The requirements are:

  • Families must host for a minimum of 9 weeks, one semester, or for the entire stay. One semester minimum is preferred.
  • Intern must have their own bedroom.
  • Internet access is highly desirable because the Intern may do a lot of communication with family and friends via Skype.
  • Family will provide 3 meals daily.
  • Transportation to and from school; interns may ride the bus too.

Interns by campus:

  • McNair – 1 intern
  • Johnson Campus – 2 interns
  • Patton Campus – 3 interns

Find out more about the Amity Program visit Amity Institute and for more information and FAQ’s on hosting click here. If you are interested in being a host family, please fill out this FORM by Monday, June 28th send it to internship@lfno.org or feel free to submit questions to the same email address.

Request to Update Information

Dear Lycée Families,
thank you for all the love and support shown to our faculty and staff during the holiday season. It was a very ‘sweet’ send off and we are getting back with renewed energy. Students are fully engaged in learning, TOC experiences are in full swing, and plans for our overall growth are ongoing.
We’d like to bring to your attention one important update in our process for requesting changes to personal information. This new process goes into effect immediately. For reasons of student safety and security, parents and guardians will be able to update personal information (address, emergency contacts and authorized pick-ups) via the following FORM. Please print, fill and bring completed, signed form to the campus specific front office manager. While this process is not ideal, it is one that guarantees our students safety. We have already reached out to our parent portal provider to add the ability to do this electronically by the beginning of next school year.
Another quick note on security: while it is a courtesy to hold the front door to school visitors, our front office staff is asking that you do not offer this courtesy, so they can better vet all those who enter our building.
Thank you for your assistance and understanding.
Marina Schoen
CEO
