The DELF Exam (Diplôme d'Etudes en Langue Française), designed by the CIEP (Centre International d'Etudes Pédagogiques), is an official qualification awarded by the French Ministry of Education certifying a level of fluency in French.  Recent efforts between French Accredited schools, AEFE, MLF and the CIEP allowed our school alumni to continue their study of the French Language and culture in a degree/certificate program.

This succes has encouraged our students currently enrolled and alumni (beyond 6th grade) to prepare  the A2, B1 and B2 exams of the DELF-junior next fall.

Offering the DELF in Maine was made possible through various partnerships and cooperative efforts.
The school wants to thank the following individuals for their assistance and collaboration:
- Elisabeth Karnoub, Fabrizio Mazzetta, Liz Brown of the French Cultural Center of Boston,
- Fabien Fieschi, Consul General of France at the French Consulate in Boston
- Anne Miller and Magali Boutiot, Cutural Attaches, at the French Consulate in Boston.
- Mark Sherringham (AEFE) and Jean-Claude Duthion (CIEP) at the French Embassy in Washington
- Sophie Polin at Mission Laique Française in Paris
- Marie-Catherine Glaser, Educational Affairs Officer at the French Embassy in Washington
- Elodie LeNezet and Emilie Paul, teachers, who recently became DELF accredited instructors / evaluators
