Admissions Process

Our Admissions process is fairly straightforward. Enrollment is open to any child between the ages of 2 and 7, 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 L’Ecole Française du Maine 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 EFDM 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. Although we accept children under the age of 3, this is not a toddler program and we expect all children to be toilet trained.
  • Acceptance
    L’Ecole Française du Maine requires a strong commitment to the program, as placements are limited. Upon admission, a contract agreement between the school and family will be completed and signed.


Enrollment priority is given to currently enrolled families, but reenrollment contracts must be received by the end of March. Applications for students not currently enrolled will be considered beginning in April for the following fall. Accepted candidates must notify the school within three weeks of their intent to attend, and the enrollment contract and deposit is due on this day.
