About APEM – Association Des Petits Ecoliers De Miami
Established in 2009, APEM is a non-profit youth association, apolitical, and non-religious registered with the State of Florida. Run by a group of volunteer French-speaking parents, we ensure quality education from the start of the school year to the end.
We are recognized by Florida Department of State and the French Foreign and European Affairs as an Educational Non-profit Organization. As such, APEM is recognized by the French government (AEFE – Agence pour l’enseignement français à l’étranger) and the French Embassy in Washington. The association is also part of the FLAM (French as Native Language) network, which operates in the United States (New-York, San Francisco, Houston, Atlanta)
Our After School French classes are offered in Miami-Dade County and Broward County. Also, our South Florida APEM is following the footsteps of several other US cities that already established programs, such as New York, Atlanta, San Francisco, Houston, and others.
