On April 21st, 2016, the New York French American Charter School will organize a benefit concert
The goal is to raise funds in order to increase the number of classrooms that will accommodate students from Pre –K to 5th grade.
The New York French American Charter School is located in the heart of Harlem in New York City and is a Tuition-free French Language immersion School that was created to develop global citizens who are well-prepared to assume leadership in a multicultural society. The school blends the rigorous standards of learning that are characteristic of the French educational system with the American educational practice that values individuality and promotes critical thinking. NYFACS opened in September 2010 servicing Kindergarten through second grade students, and has grown to our current K-5 status with nearly 260 students enrolled.
Our Event is endorsed by the Lycée Français and The Senegalese Association, and will be held between 7-9 pm, at the Robert F. Wagner Middle School, 220 East 76th Street (between 2nd and 3rd Avenue) in the intimate 500-seat auditorium . The tickets are available here.
