What is the French International School(FIS)? It is a private independent American school, not a French public school. It is a 501-c-3 Not-For-Profit Foundation governed by its Board of Trustees and operating within US and Maryland laws, rules and good practice guidelines like other independent schools in the area. Its Mission as defined by the Board is : 1) To offer to students in the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan area an educational curriculum reflecting standards and guidelines in effect in France, as defined by the French educational authorities, in order to prepare students for the French baccalaureate examination and for admission to institutions of higher education in France and in other French-speaking countries 2) Furthermore, to qualify students for admission to colleges and universities in the United States by offering a curriculum including courses focusing on the English language, American history and civilization; and 3) To promote the diffusion of French language and culture in the context of American society in a manner that reflects the cultural diversity of the school. It is one of two Lycées Conventionnés in the US - the other schools are Homologués

FIS is a Lycée Conventionné : The Lycée receives financial support from the AEFE* through the payment of 10 expatriates The Lycée receives a contribution towards school instructional projects The Lycée follows some French educational system regulations and policies. The Lycée offers a French educational curriculum conforming to standards and guidelines in effect in France (BO) and prepares the students for the French baccalaureat examination Other Schools are Homologués : Administrators not named and paid by the AEFE* but rather by the board The School can receive a contribution towards instructional projects The School offers a French educational curriculum conforming to standards and guidelines in effect in France (BO) and prepares the students for the French baccalaureat examination (*) AEFE : Agence pour lEnseignement Français à lEtranger

Advancement – Give for Growth An independent schools financial health depends on a strong partnership between the school administration, the Board of Trustees, families and alumni. Our Goal is to maintain the extraordinary academic and learning environment that Lycée Rochambeau has provided for more than 50 years while keeping the tuition fees reasonable. The Annual Fund was established to raise the additional needed funds for greater annual operating support.
The Annual Fund Like all Independent Schools, the Annual Fund is the foundation of all school fundraising efforts and is our first philanthropic priority. Every year, parents, trustees, alumni, friends, faculty and staff are asked to support the annual fund, by making a gift. By supporting Lycée Rochambeau, donors show their commitment to the students and to the quality of education that the school offers. 2006-2007: $13,675 from 36 donors 2007-2008: $37,015 from 56 gifts from 49 donors 2008-2009: $ 37,485 from 68 gifts from 64 donors 2009-2010 RochamGoal: $80 000 with many donors ! Gifts to the Annual Fund support the overall budget, they will be used to: help defray tuition increases enhance the schools extensive academic and extracurricular activities maintain and improve campus facilities attract and retain a diverse faculty and student body Every gift counts ! Gifts to the Annual Fund are fully tax-deductible as allowed by law. All non-anonymous gifts will be published in our Annual Report.
