For English Speakers
English-only speaking families:
Give your child an edge
29% of our students speak only English at home,
100% Baccalaureate success rate, with on average 85% passing with Honors
100% College Acceptance rate, with 75% choosing to attend the most prestigious among the US, British and Canadian Universities.
Three entry points for non-French speakers:
- In Preschool (3 to 6 years old)
- in High School, in 9th Grade in our International Program and in 11th Grade in our International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program.
Instruction in French
In Preschool, no French is needed. We offer a French immersion program with linguistic support tailored to the needs of each child
In Elementary School, to develop French linguistic skills we implement:
- Push-in: a second teacher comes into the classroom during certain French Language Arts classes
- Pull-out: small groups of students work separately with a teacher on specific skills during certain French Language Arts classes
By the Secondary School, students have acquired a mastery of the French Language. They may receive extra help in French at every grade level
Instruction in English
From 1st grade through 10th grade, classes taught in English may include: English, Social Studies, some Math, Sciences, Art, Music, and Physical Education. In most of those classes, students are grouped according to their fluency in English. Anglophone students are placed in groups in which the level of instruction compares favorably to the Honors programs of the best independent schools of the area.
In 9th grade, a new International Program taught entirely in English invites English-speaking students who wish to challenge themselves academically to join our international, culturally diverse community of students and teachers. The international program in 9th grade will be an optimal preparation for the IB program in grades 11 and 12.
In 11th grade, students may elect to continue either in
- the International Baccalaureate track taught in English, with the option to prepare a bilingual IB if they qualify to take both English and French as a language A
- the French Baccalaureate track taught mainly in French, with the OIB (the International (American) Option of the French Bac), in which English and Social Studies are taught in English at the AP or Honors levels.
