Welcome to Rochambeau!

Rochambeau is a non-profit school, approved by the Ministry of Education and operating within the framework of the Agency for French Teaching Abroad (AEFE). As a member of this unique network of nearly 500 schools in 135 countries worldwide, we offer the best of an education system acclaimed for the breadth of its program and its teaching of skill, providing its students with critical thinking, discipline and rigor.

Rochambeau is the only school in Washington DC and its surroundings to provide an education based on a unique combination of the French program and a high quality English program. We welcome students from the Toute Petite Section preschool class (2yr old) to senior year, representing over 80 different nationalities, with varied cultural, socioeconomic and linguistic backgrounds.

This extraordinary diversity is an asset that we are quite proud of! Our students understand from an early age that differences and otherness are the richness of the world and great sources of discovery and personal enrichment.

At the crossroads of French and American cultures, we further increased the value of our academic and educational approach by integrating the best of the American approach in terms of self development, autonomy, responsibility building, self-trust and creativity.

By giving our students access to a Maryland High School Diploma, as well as a French Baccalaureat, this unique education opens for them the doors of Francophone and Anglophone colleges and universities around the world.

That is the Rochambeau advantage !

I wish you a nice visit on our website and I look forward to welcoming you at the Rochambeau.
