This is the second year of the Coast-to-Coast Signature Program!
Last year, FASRI students collaboratively explored with their San Diego French American School peers (SDFAS) the theme of “Ocean Uses”. The program is an inquiry-based and student-centered, cross-age, cross-curricular, cross-school, and cross-country initiative. Using the classroom, independent research, fieldwork, and a cross-country exchange program, students from FASRI and SDFAS work collaboratively to explore questions of their choosing related to a broad global theme. In 2020/2021, the students from SDFAS and FASRI will continue to build strong working relationships and friendships as they explore the theme of “Fresh Waters”.
The registration to the program might include a competitive selection process if there are more applicants than the program capacity of 12 students.

The FASRI club program provides a fun, safe opportunity for students to explore new and enriching activities in a non-academic setting. Clubs are open to FASRI students and members of the community. Clubs offer a fun way for students to explore an activity that interests them and practice their French in a different context. Classes are offered from preschool through Grade 8.
Each year, the Extracurricular Department creates a diverse list of structured activities and clubs taught by FASRI teachers and members of the wider community, many of whom teach their club in French. Between art, sports and STEM-based learning, there is something for everyone. Each after-school activity builds skills in one or more important areas: critical thinking, technological literacy, French, and many more. Some past clubs have included lego stem, cooking, fencing, zoo program, robotics, yoga, theater, and soccer.
All clubs are open to the whole community. Please contact Virginie Gherardi for more information. Merci!
