Welcome to the French American School of Princeton!

Interim Head of School, Dominique Velociter


It is a privilege to serve the French American School of Princeton’s (FASP) international community as the interim Head of School (HOS) until the end of June 2023. I occupy very big shoes after taking over from Corinne Güngör, the school founder and longtime HOS. As a school founder and seasoned head of international schools myself, I am confident that the Board of Trustees and I will provide the solid groundwork for a smooth transition to the next permanent headship and for greater things to come.

The past year and a half have presented challenges that dramatically impacted our community and communities across the world. We will continue to adapt and modify our programs as necessary and prevail as an exceptional learning environment for our students.

It is with pride that I joined the FASP community. Every morning upon entering our stunning campus is an opportunity to feel grateful for the beauty of nature and to celebrate the value of a pastoral setting. At FASP, our students feel safe to learn, express themselves, and savor new experiences. We encourage them to unveil and explore their unique talents, unleash their curiosity, their creativity, reflect and share thoughts, and embrace challenges. Daily, our bilingual students seize the boundless shapes, tastes, melodies, and colors of the world illustrating an array of people, customs, and communities, while preparing for a rich journey of exchanges and discoveries.

We welcome your child and family to our bilingual school and our multicultural international community. We look forward to seeing you on our campus.

A très bientôt,

Dominique Velociter
Interim Head of School
