Au Petit Bonheur is officially recognised by and collaborates with the French National Agency for the Promotion of the French Language Abroad (AEFE) of the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and participates in a global network of schools that work towards ensuring the quality and consistent excellence of French education in host countries.
Beyond being a strong career asset and a language associated with culture, several hundreds of thousands of pupils are enrolled at French International schools across the world. Speaking French opens up opportunities for higher education at some of the world’s best known universities (the Sorbonne, Pierre Marie Curie University and others) or the French elite grandes écoles (such as HEC, Polytechnique, ESSEC etc.), often on very favourable financial terms.
