FASNY follows the academic curriculum established by the French Ministry of Education, which develops the examinations for each subject and also appoints the examiners. Each examination consists of a series of essays requiring significant in-depth analysis. Students also are required to sit for two to four oral examinations. The bac is administered over a two-week period in early June.
With success rates consistently at 100%, and students passing with honors at an average of 90%, FASNY offers excellent preparation for either the ES (Economics and Social Sciences) or S (Math and Sciences) track of the French baccalaureate.
While the coursework is taught primarily in French, students have the option to concurrently pursue the OIB in English, with English and social studies taught in English by American teachers at a level equivalent to AP or honors.
