Parallel Remote Learning
As soon as our campus closed due to the health crisis last March, our faculty and staff worked relentlessly to implement a comprehensive e-Learning plan. At the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year, our students from Kindergarten through 8th grade started school remotely while our preschool and pre-Kindergarten students were back on campus on the first day. At the time, we had extended our e-Learning plan to include more frequent and lengthier online sessions with the French, English, Math and STEM teachers, and reduce the amount of independent work students are required to complete.
Since September 16th, we have been able to offer on-campus classes for all of our students, as well as a parallel remote learning for children who prefer to stay home, thanks to the installation of 360-degree cameras in the classrooms.
In any event, in these vastly uncertain times, our families know they can count on our faculty and staff to be fully ready to pivot to e-learning should the sanitary situation require a school closure.
Feel free to visit our school blog here to learn more.

Based on program eligibility, 24% of the International School of Orange County’s student body typically receive some degree of financial aid, either from France and/or directly from our school. French nationals studying at our school have the opportunity to apply annually for need-based scholarships (bourse scolaire) directly from the French government. This external financial assistance helps our school maintain a diverse socioeconomic atmosphere, as well as allows for a reasonable overall fee scale, in comparison to other local private schools and French schools around the country. This support is possible because the International School of Orange County maintains its accreditation from the French Ministry of Education. Information about the bourse scolaire can be found on the French Consulate’s website.
Our school also administers its own need-based financial aid program. School-funded financial assistance is not available for new families. The application for school-funded financial aid is available from SSS here.
