Prepare to the French Baccalaureate

The high school curriculum is designed to allow all students to develop rigorous and autonomous work habits, build a robust general culture, and specialize in subject areas of their choice. In Grade 11 (première) and Grade 12 (terminale), the ratio of specialized courses, alongside common core courses, increases. Three levels of English courses are available. Beside French and English, another modern language (LVB) is mandatory, and a fourt language is available as an elective (LVC) starting in grade 10: Spanish, German, Mandarin and Italian. 

High school students receive individualized guidance from their teachers and our University Counselor, specialized in international higher education institutions, particularly in North America and Europe.

Organization

During the three years of high school, students may have up to 40 hours of weekly instruction and related personal work. An academic year in high school is made of three equal terms and three reports of the student's work and grades.

Parents can meet with teachers during scheduled parent-teachers night or anytime by appointment. They are regularly updated about their student’s academic progress via the Pronote software or during individual meeting.

In addition to the support provided by the faculty, students are also accompanied by the University counsellor, the university counsellor, the Secondary Director and the Head of School.

Curriculum

Grade 10 (seconde) is a keystone year during which students consolidate their general culture, develop their autonomy and test their interests and aptitudes before choosing their specialization. All students have a common core of courses.

Grades 11 (première) and 12 (terminale) are the final years of the French curriculum. Mandatory courses include common core subjects as well as the specialties chosen by the student (3 specialties in Grade 11, reduced to 2 in Grade 12) which determine a pathway that is consistent with the student’s interests and goals. The French Baccalaureate is the culmination of the 2 final years of high school.

Elective courses are offered throughout high school: cinema studies, visual arts, Latin antiquity, and 4th language.

The International American Section is open to French and English-speaking students who have a special interest in literature and appreciate a variety of learning methods. This section is optional and compatible with other electives.
