Why choose EFIC for your child?

The French International School of Colombo is an institution affiliated with the Agency for French Education Abroad (AEFE). As such, it is part of a network of 566 schools in 139 countries, all following the same French curriculum.

A student educated in this network can continue their education worldwide without the fear of interruptions between what they have studied in their previous school and what they will study in their new institution. Furthermore, the French baccalaureate is a globally recognized diploma, enabling our former students to successfully pursue higher education in France or abroad.

Language learning is a priority in our school, which is bilingual in French and English from kindergarten onwards. Learning French is important, even for those who are already fluent in English. French is the second most widely taught language in the world and is the official or working language in several dozen countries. Learning French opens doors to new cultures and provides an additional advantage for future studies and careers.

Our school also prioritizes kindergarten education because by learning French at a young age, non-French-speaking students have the best chances of success in their academic journey. As for French-speaking students, they can quickly become bilingual. French kindergarten education has earned an international reputation because it allows young children to learn while fostering creativity and independence. It is ultimately a nurturing school where your children will be happy and flourish.
