What documents will I need and where must I apply for it? Please answer my question will all the information you think will help me in this process.

You are from USA, so you surely need to obtain Student visa to undertake language course in France. For French Student visa, youíll need to apply in French Consulateís office in Chicago as it is the French General Consulateís office to do all the tasks related to visa in Michigan State.

Address for French Consulate Generalís Office in Chicago:
Michigan Plaza

Documents Required for French Student Visa are:
A valid passport (even must be valid for three months after your date of leaving France)
Recently taken passport sized photo
Financial Evidences
Accommodation reservations
Medical Insurance Certificate
Letter of acceptance for University/College youíve planned to study in
Your previous transcripts

Since, the visa youíll be receiving is Schengen visa, with it: youíll also be able to travel to 15 European countries which include France too. Other countries are: Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Italy, Luxembourg, Holland, Norway, Portugal, Spain, and Sweden. However, this is short stay visa for study in France and will be suitable for you because Language course isnít a long duration course.
