Pupils must be fully bilingual and capable of following a demanding academic programme comprising grade-level language study in both French and English. Successful students are both bilingual and bicultural, typically with at least one English-speaking parent. The programme is also open to French pupils and other nationalities who have lived in an English-speaking country or previously been enrolled in a bilingual programme.
A child can attend an international section for all or part of collège to consolidate his/her bilingualism, and then go on to a regular lycée and take any French baccalauréat — général, technologique, or professionnel. Most of our students stay on in the programme to complete an OIB.
