Partnership with EFGB (École Française Greater Boston)
Winchester, Massachusetts: OFALycée today announced a new partnership with EFGB (École Française Greater Boston). This partnership will provide French and francophones families in the US or elsewhere the opportunity to benefit from a French secondary school of excellence. After their schooling at EFGB, students from 6th to 12th grade will be able to pursue their French education online up to the French Baccalaureate.
“We are the alternative so many families were waiting for!” says Geraldine Guillermin, Head of School at Ofalycée. “We are the only French-American Online school offering this revolutionary bilingual and bicultural program”. “The lack of high schools offering the French program in the United States effectively excludes many interested families from the French education system. The growing use of digital education and the wish to offer a complete bilingual education at an affordable price are the determining factors that led us to the creation of OFALycée, the first Franco-American online institution.”
“We are delighted to partner with this new educational initiative OFALycée,” says Hervé Seux, Founder & President at EFGB. “It will create the perfect transition for our elementary school students and our FLAM students. EFGB is very excited to work closely with the education experts from OFALycée and transfer their expertise to our school and after school programs for the benefit of our students. EFGB is committed to partnering with innovative schools to offer alternative educational solutions for our community”.
The benefits of this new partnership include.
- EFGB students benefit from a smooth transition to the French secondary school programs
- An increased visibility of OFALycée in the Boston area
- Teacher training at EFGB by OFALycée teachers
- Shared info sessions, seminars about French and Bilingual education
