Franco-American Organizations and Schools – Marseille

The Embassy publishes this list as a convenient reference for interested groups and individuals. It is not an exhaustive compilation, but includes groups and organizations known to the Embassy through its deal-ings with the American community. Organizations not on this list and who consider themselves to be active in American community life in Paris are cordially invited to make their interests known to the Embassy. If errors have occurred in this list, they will be corrected in the next edition. This file is updated triennially. Each organization should bring any errors to the Embassy’s attention, as well as any changes in names, addresses, telephone numbers and basic information. All corrections and changes should be sent to: American Embassy, American Citizen Services, 4, avenue Gabriel, 75382 Paris Cedex 08 or send an E-mail to CitizeninfoMarseille@state.gov.

Schools: The large, long-established American community in France makes possible a wide range of educational opportunities for Americans. Essentially three types of schools are available: private American schools, bilingual schools where both French and English are used, and the French school system, taught in French, which is designed to lead to the Baccalaureate examination. American children have been accepted in French schools and, when necessary, tutored in the French language.

The Embassy does not recommend particular schools or send representatives to visit them. For more information on any of the schools listed below, please contact the schools directly.
