The Lycée is a French school offering an outstanding education from Pre-Kindergarten to University Entrance. We are affiliated with the Ministère de l’Education Nationale de France and are a part of the A.E.F.E. network of 494 schools across 136 countries. A standardized curriculum gives students the opportunity to study at any Lycée across the world. The Lycée promotes excellence in languages–English, Spanish, German, Mandarin, Italian and Latin, a vibrant and expanding sports program (soccer, rugby, basketball…) and a growing music and arts program. Our Grade 12 students are awarded early acceptances, scholarships and credits at top universities across Canada, North America and Europe. The diversity of our student population gives them the opportunity to experience life in a global village and promotes tolerance, respect and team work. We offer after-school day care and extracurricular programs (soccer, karate, mad science, art...). During school breaks our sports and French-speaking activity camps are open to the community.

    Preschool/K Curriculum Play-based

    • Play-based
    • Montessori
    • Waldorf
    • Reggio Emilia
    • Academic

    Play-based programs are the most common type of preschool and Kindergarten, and are founded on the belief young children learn best through play. Largely open-ended and minimally structured, play-based programs aim to develop social skills and a love of attending school. “Pre-academic” skills are taught, but in a more indirect way than at, say, an Academic program: through children playing in different “stations” set up around the classroom, which children choose on their own volition. Stations often contain an indirect lesson or developmental goal. Play-based classrooms are highly social and active.

    What LFT says: Our program is designed to provide students with a structured body of general knowledge while encouraging the development of analytical and critical thinking skills. The curriculum is based on the French national curriculum, and augmented by a strong English program ; the curriculum exceeds all requirements set by France, preparing our students to enter and thrive at both North American and European colleges and universities.


    Curriculum Pace Standard-enriched

    • Standard-enriched
    • Accelerated
    • Student-paced

    Broadly-speaking, the main curriculum -- like that of most schools -- paces the provincially-outlined one. This pace is steady and set by the teachers and school. The curriculum might still be enriched in various ways: covering topics more in-depth and with more vigor than the provincial one, or covering a broader selection of topics.

    Flexible pacing:

    Flexible pacing style = offered
    Subject-streaming (tracking)
    Multi-age classrooms as standard
    Ability-grouping (in-class) as common
    Frequent use of cyber-learning (at-their-own-pace)
    Regular guided independent study opportunities
    Differentiated assessment

    What LFT says about flexible pacing: This information is not currently available.


    Academic Culture Rigorous

    • Rigorous
    • Supportive

    A school with a “rigorous” academic culture places a high value on academic performance, and expects their students to do the same. This does not mean the school is uncaring, unsupportive, or non-responsive -- far from it. A school can have a rigorous academic culture and still provide excellent individual support. It does mean, however, the school places a particular emphasis on performance -- seeking the best students and challenging them to the fullest extent -- relative to a normal baseline. High expectations and standards – and a challenging yet rewarding curriculum – are the common themes here. Keep in mind this classification is more relevant for the older grades: few Kindergarten classrooms, for example, would be called “rigorous”.

    What LFT says: Our program is designed to provide students with a structured body of general knowledge while encouraging the development of analytical and critical thinking skills. The curriculum is based on the French national curriculum, and augmented by a strong English program ; the curriculum exceeds all requirements set by France, preparing our students to enter and thrive at both North American and European colleges and universities.


    Developmental Priorities Intellectual, Balanced

    Primary Developmental Priority: Intellectual
    Academically strong, creative, and critical thinkers, capable of exercising rationality, apprehending truth, and making aesthetic distinctions.

    Secondary Developmental Priority: Balanced
    Equal attention is paid to a balance of priorities: intellectual, emotional, social, and physical.

The curriculum is based on the French national curriculum, and augmented by a strong English program ; the curriculum exceeds all requirements set by France, preparing our students to enter and thrive at both North American and European colleges and universities.
