    Activate Your Parent Portal

    Dear Parents and Guardians,


    Due to district level changes, every parent must have an Active Parent Portal through Illuminate. You can access the Illuminate Parent Portal here:


    This will give you access to important information, such as grades, for your student.


    To ensure your child’s safety, please go online and complete the required forms in the Parent Portal ASAP. We will not have an updated Emergency Card for your student until your form is completed.


    If you have not yet set up your Parent Portal, follow the instructions here:


    To activate your portal, you will need an access code that was sent to you via email at the beginning of the year. If you cannot find your access code, please contact the office.

    The guiding philosophy of the Santa Rosa French-American Charter School (SRFACS) is to provide a standards-based education program taught primarily in the French language and secondarily in American English for students in grades TK through 6th grade.  The school primarily serves students who live in the Bay Area with the explicit goal of attracting those who have an interest in the French language and culture.  In addition, SRFACS builds a community of families who are interested in cultivating global and multi-ethnic perspectives. 


    Santa Rosa French-American Charter School is Dependent Charter School in the Santa Rosa City Schools District. SRFACS is a public French Immersion school and it is the only accredited public school of its kind in California. Our accreditation is through L’Agence pour l’Enseignement Français à l’Étranger/Agency for French Education Abroad (AEFE). This accreditation enables students to access any French educational system worldwide.  SRFACS is certified to administer the Diplôme d’Études en Langue Française (DELF).  SRFACS is the first public school to provide this unique education proudly offering equitable access to all students. 


    Students at SRFACS excel through a harmonization between the French Ministry of Educational Standards and the California Common Core State Standards. Mastery of the French and English language will give students the cultural confidence needed to become global citizens.  Our teachers bring their culture, language, and expertise along with their French teaching credential.  Our students’ cultural confidence is infused by our many native French-speaking teachers and through various subject content.
