Interested in private school for this September but not sure where to start? It’s not too late to explore Léman Manhattan Preparatory School, located just over the river in the historic Financial District. All students will learn full-time in person at Léman this fall.

Nearly 20 percent of Léman families live in Brooklyn. To accommodate the school’s growing number of Brooklyn families, Léman is launching a new private bus service for students from Brooklyn in Kindergarten through 8th grade starting in the 2021-2022 school year.

In addition, Léman recognizes affording a private education can be a challenge for many families. They make private school accessible to a wide range of families across income levels with a supportive tuition assistance program. With a mission to provide quality education to their students, Léman wants to ensure that every eligible student has the ability to experience their top-notch program.

Part of what makes Léman Manhattan so special is their commitment to academic excellence and a strong sense of community. They offer the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program, a curriculum highly regarded for its ability to provide a high quality college preparatory education. Universities across the globe recognize and respect the IB program, giving their students a potential leg-up in what can be an incredibly stressful application process. In fact, the school notes that 80% of graduates are accepted into highly selective colleges and universities.

In addition to serving as an IB school, Léman is also the only boarding program in New York City and is also one of few schools that serve students throughout their entire educational career – from toddlers to 12th grade. With a local and international student body (over 70 nationalities represented), hands-on approaches to learning, and an active and diligent focus on community service, Léman has been preparing students for an interconnected world since 2005.

The Language Workshop For Children

<p dir="ltr">After offering both group and private lessons for many years and analyzing the results over time, The Language Workshop for Children, founded in1973, has decided to emphasize private remote lessons at shorter intervals. Our skilled educators will focus their attention exclusively on the unique needs, learning style, and interests of your child. This allows a bond to develop between teacher and student, which has been shown to drastically improve retention. </p> <p dir="ltr"><strong>OUR METHOD </strong></p> <p dir="ltr">Developed by the pioneers of language education for children, our programs bring decades of experience to your living room with individualized, active language classes. Each lesson is based on proven methods and materials perfected to capture your child’s attention during the ages when he/she absorbs information the fastest.   </p> <p dir="ltr">While other online language classes rely on videos for passive learning, we deliver interactive, and engaging lessons with native-fluent teachers. In addition, all our teachers are certified in the Thibaut Technique which has been featured in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and many other well-respected publications.  </p> <p dir="ltr">Our short one-on-one lessons give kids the chance to focus, hear pronunciation clearly, and practice speaking in their target language. </p> <p dir="ltr"><strong>THE PROCESS</strong> </p> <p dir="ltr">First, students have a short meeting with our Director Francois Thibaut, in English, with their parent(s) present. Mr. Thibaut will determine the best course of study, including class length and frequency, the right teacher, lesson format and materials (or action games for younger students.) Then the learning begins! Mr. Thibaut will continually check in on your child’s learning to assure they are getting the most of their classes. </p> <p dir="ltr"><strong>OTHER OFFERINGS </strong></p> <p dir="ltr">We can also help your child prepare for: the French subject tests for SAT, AP & CLEP, the European DELF/DALF, the Canadian TEF and other standardized testing, college entry exams, studying or traveling abroad, cultural changes when moving abroad, and much more! </p> <p><span id="docs-internal-guid-a97d759c-7fff-6e4d-8e93-70e093aa10f1"> </span></p>
