Lyceum Kennedy International School
December 4, 2023
Lyceum Kennedy French American School was created in 1964 to serve the needs of French and francophone families living in New York City. Fifty years later, the school is one of the best international schools in the NY metro area and welcomes students from more than 40 countries, aged from 3 through 18 years. From Nursery, the students follow the official programs of the French Ministry of Education and New York State Board of Regents, provided by certified and experienced teachers, with additional language support to strengthen students’ second language to the point where they can fully participate in all English and French programs with native speakers. Lyceum Kennedy offers the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme. The IB Diploma is an outstanding diploma recognized in more than 144 countries. A wide range of after-school enrichment activities are offered as an opportunity for the students to fully develop physically, artistically, and intellectually.
Lyceum Kennedy is located in Midtown Manhattan (225 East and 43rd Street; 815 2nd Avenue – from nursery to twelfth grade) and Ardsley, Westchester (One Cross Road, Ardsley – from nursery to 5th grade).
Our school welcomes children from many nationalities and different linguistic backgrounds, some less common like Portuguese, Lithuanian, or Hebrew. Concerning the respect of all religious faiths like Judaism, Lyceum Kennedy, since its foundation, allows the observance of Shabbes: the school is closed on Saturday and early Friday afternoon. At the request of some families, Hebrew language and civilization classes are offered (all grades). We will be happy to welcome you, faithful readers of Jewish Parents Magazine, if you wish to enroll your child(ren) in our school.
