Union School Academy

Every Wednesday, an anthology of activities to have fun and exercise

As a bilingual School of Excellence, Union School Paris’ priority is to offer children as many experiences as possible. Stimulating, socialising, structuring, exhilarating, it is through these experiences that their incredible cognitive abilities will be multiplied, opening up a multitude of opportunities.

This is why we have designed the Union School Academy: a Wednesday afternoon club that offers children the opportunity to learn while having fun. The workshops offered have been developed with partners who are specialists in early childhood, chosen for their professionalism and caring. Their programme is perfectly in line with the school’s educational philosophy.

Perfectly supervised, the children give free rein to their creativity, unleash their energy, and set out to conquer their multiple talents.
