With three years to prepare for the French Baccalauréat, our high school students learn autonomy and take the classes necessary to prepare them for the final Bac exams. Grade 10 (Seconde) students is a common education year where all LFT students study the same courses. Then in Grade 11 (Première) and Grade 12 (Terminale), students specialize into the BAC stream of their choice. The LFT currently offers two options of academic concentration: Scientific (S):  Concentration in mathematics and science with extra specialization in mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology and natural sciences, and technology. Economics and Social Sciences (ES):  Concentration in economics, sociology, history and geography with specialization in economics, mathematics and languages. Classes in English (for an overview of our English program, click here) and a third language continue to play an important role. The weekly schedule for class time falls between 29 to 33 hours, with additional time added for studying.

The Baccalauréat has been in existence since the creation of French national public education. It follows the academic curriculum established by the French Ministry of Education and is deployed on a national scale. It not only signals the successful completion of secondary education, but is also the essential credential for entry into any of the French national universities.
The Baccalauréat includes compulsory written and oral exams, which vary based on the Bac stream chosen by each student. It also includes optional exams (for more information on OIB, click here). The exams generally cover the official Grade 12 curricula.
The majority of the exams are taken at the end of Grade 12.  Some exams are written in Grade 11. While others, for example phys ed, are graded over time.
The Baccalauréat examination is comprised of written, oral and practical exams for the candidate’s chosen stream. Those who obtain an average of 10/20 or more obtain their Baccalauréat.
