Santa Rosa French-American Charter School
Le centre aéré en français – French Immersion Summer Camp at SRFACS
We are excited to announce that for the second time, a full French Immersion Summer Camp will be offered this summer on the campus of the Santa Rosa French-American Charter School for 6 weeks from June 22nd – July 31st.
The Summer Camp will be run by EFBA (Education Française Bay Area), a French non-profit organization, which has developed a unique language immersion summer camp where children can improve their fluency while being active and having fun. The Camp Counselors are young adults and all native speakers. The ratio of 1 adult for 5 children ensures that each child is engaged in French at all time and stays sharp in his language skills during the summer. Even beginners love it!
You are curious but still need to be convinced before committing? During the school year, EFBA offers a cultural immersion program called Kids’ Night Out, which is a condensed version of its Summer Camps. Today, EFBA is bringing this event to SRFACS on two different days and is happy to offer your child a free (value of $50) insight into what our French Summer Camps will be like in Santa Rosa!
The 5-hour Kids’ Night Out event will take place at the SRFACS
from 3pm – 8pm on the following dates *:
January 30th, 2015
February 27th, 2015
These events will leave your child laughing and wanting more…

*On each date a more comprehensive presentation of the EFBA Summer Camps education project will be given to the parents from 7pm to 8pm. Please note children may only attend one of the two offered events.
SRFACS Selected by the Santa Rosa Symphony "It's Elementary"
Santa Rosa Symphony bestowed a tremendous honor and privilege upon SRFACS students, their families, teachers and administration: SRFACS has been selected as one of four schools in Sonoma County to enjoy their “It’s Elementary” two year music immersion program, free of charge, starting in fall 2014. The many benefits of Santa Rosa Symphony Its Elementary program are detailed here.
Located in Northern California's wine region, one hour north of San Francisco, Santa Rosa French-American Charter School (SRFACS) is a dependent, public charter school, serving children from transitional kindergarten to eighth grade. We are fortunate to have the support, resources, and expertise of Santa Rosa City School District (SRCS) to help us establish a campus that will draw students from Sonoma, Napa, and Marin Counties in August 2012. In addition to exceeding expectations for a well-equipped elementary school, we will strive to create a cultural center for the benefit of our community.
SRFACS provides a rigorous and exciting education curriculum, with a global perspective. Our language immersion program draws children who love to be challenged and parents that are engaged and dedicated. This combination makes SRFACS students, parents and our community, engaged not only locally, but also globally.
Our rich curriculum with a unique and inspiring approach to education will provide students with opportunities to develop inner strength and potential that will serve them for the rest of their lives.

This video examines the value of a bilingual education, exploring why younger children have a superior ability to learn a second language. Considering research from Eric Lenneberg, Ellen Bialystok, among others, it also looks at why bilingual students are better speakers, better thinkers, better learners, have superior focus, score higher on tests, and are better citizens of the world.
SRFACS is a Santa Rosa City Schools establishment and affiliated with the following institutions.
