French educational institutions abroad are internationally recognised for their high-quality teaching methods, forming a unique and unified network.
Established in 1990, the Agency for French Education Abroad (AEFE) is a national public institution supervised by the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs (MEAE). The primary objective of the AEFE is to support, promote, and develop a worldwide school network that stands as unparalleled. Currently, the AEFE oversees 566 schools in 139 countries, educating French children and children of various nationalities to become informed global citizens.
Comprising diverse school types, this network receives support from the French government, ensuring its exceptional quality. This model is built upon both academic excellence and an unwavering commitment to student development and well-being.
The AEFE provides financial assistance to the French School in Cape Town.
There are over 600,000 alumni from French lycées worldwide who now serve as ambassadors for French education and its values. They constitute a dynamic network in various sectors and across all nations.
These alumni are organised into local alumni associations, a global Union-ALFM association, and an international social, associative, and professional network. Every two years, they also host a world forum (FOMA) aimed at strengthening this network and nurturing connections based on a shared education, language, and values.
