Stratton Academy of the Arts recently received a grant from the FACE Foundation (French-American Cultural Exchange) for its new fourth grade dual-language classroom. 

Stratton is one of only five Midwestern schools to receive a 2020 grant from the foundation. The latest grant is the fourth awarded to Stratton’s French-English dual language program by the FACE Foundation. In addition to grant funds, the foundation also coordinated a French Council visit to the school last year.

Stratton’s French-English dual language program launched as a kindergarten strand in 2017 and was the first in Illinois outside of the Chicago area. The program now includes Pre-K through fourth grade classrooms.
