French Heritage Language Program - Maine

Maine French Heritage Language Program (MFHLP)

Following the success of the pilot French program “Le Soleil” in two schools of Augusta last year, the French Heritage Language Program has allied its forces with the University of Maine at Augusta, the Franco American Heritage Center in Lewiston, and the Centre de la Francophonie des Amériques, to launch an innovative French heritage program in three schools of Augusta and Auburn.

The “Maine French Heritage Language Program” is based on a curriculum specifically designed to meet the needs of the Franco-American community in the State of Maine. With an estimated 30% of the population in Maine of Franco-American heritage background, the program ambitions to bridge the gap between generations, offering the younger the possibility to access, maintain and transmit the cultural and linguistic heritage they are from. It is open to every child and also aims at promoting the diversity of French and francophone cultures. At a time when the demand for French instruction is high, the program hopes that its efforts can serve as a model for other cities in Maine and New England. We wish this new French heritage program great success.
