Académie Lafayette is a national leader in language immersion and global studies education, empowering our students to reach their full potential and make a difference in the world.

The Joy of Learning — We provide a supportive and engaging environment where learning comes naturally.

Caring Community — Our committed teachers and families support each other and are willing to do whatever it takes to help every child succeed.
