Admissions Process

Our Admissions process is fairly straightforward. Enrollment is open to any child age 3 and up, with priority given first to children who are reenrolling, then to siblings of children enrolled, and then to the waiting list.

  • Inquiry
    The first step to being admitted to The French American School of Tampa Bay is to contact us. We’re available through phone, letter, email, or online inquiry form, and we look forward to hearing from you.
  • Application
    Complete an application for enrollment and return it to FASTB with a non-refundable application fee of $50.00 (fee applies to initial application only).
  • Interview
    Upon receipt of the completed application form and fee, the parent or guardian/child interview is a required part of the admissions procedure. Through the interview, we strive to understand your child’s readiness for and ability to benefit from our program. We accept children age 3 and up. This is not a toddler program and we expect all children to be toilet trained.
  • Acceptance
    The French American School of Tampa Bay requires a strong commitment to the program, as placements are limited. Upon admission, you will be invited to submit our Enrollment Contract and deposit.  Once completed and accepted, your child’s spot will be secure for the school year.
