Governor French Academy
Governor French Academy is a coeducational college-preparatory school for students in Kindergarten Preparatory through grade 12. Located in Belleville, IL, we have crafted our curriculum with a focus on our mission: to successfully prepare our students for college. Our goal is for students to leave our school as competitors in a global economy.
Our Curriculum is centered on basic skills of reading, writing, mathematics, science, social sciences and world languages at all levels. The foundation for success is an emphasis on traditional values of hard work and individual accomplishment. At Governor French Academy, our curriculum has come to look much like the nationally renowned Core Knowledge Curriculum, developed by E.D. Hirsch and the Core Knowledge Foundation. However, Core Knowledge is not and should not be confused with Common Core. Core Knowledge makes sense; Common Core does not.
For quality education and an environment where your child will grow and thrive, come visit Governor French Academy and enroll your child today. Contact us for more information!
“I will point ye out the right path of a virtuous and noble Education; laborious at first ascent, but else so smooth, so green, so full of goodly prospect, and melodious sounds on every side, that the harp of Orpheus was not more charming.”-John Milton
