What should you expect of a private boarding school?

French secondary education is divided into two schools:

  • the “collège” for the first four years directly following primary school (Grades 6-9)
  • the “lycée” for the next three years.

Completion of secondary studies leads to the “baccalauréat”. The school’s director makes the decision regarding grade and placement level for international students, taking into account the school’s organization, the student’s transcripts and their French level. All students attend general classes such as French, History, Foreign Language (usually English, then German or Spanish), Sports, etc..

Private boarding schools in France only offer 5-day boarding option. Exchange students are hosted in host families for weekends and holidays.
There is a strong community spirit in these schools and students are involved in many international projects. Discover our schools!

Graduation from a boarding school in France is only possible after at least two years of study (Grade 11 and 12).
