About this school:

A non-denominational private school offering full-time programs from 3 years old to Grade 12, the Lycée Louis Pasteur belongs to a global network of 494 French schools. We provide a French program with a European teaching style alongside the Canadian curriculum approved by Alberta Education. Spanish is also offered from Grade 6 onward. Graduates obtain the French baccalaureate which is accepted by top universities worldwide. Our Intensive French Program welcomes grade 1-5 students who have no exposure to French.



Curriculum Traditional, Language-based

Primary Curriculum: Traditional

Secondary Curriculum: Language-based
Language immersion schools teach students a full academic curriculum but in a different language than English (or French in parts of Quebec). By the time students graduate from an immersion program, they should be fully bilingual in both their mother tongue (English/French) and in the language of instruction. Immersion schools are appropriate for bright students who welcome the extra cognitive and academic challenge.

What LYCEE LOUIS PASTEUR says: " Strong, Diverse program" The Lycée Louis Pasteur belongs to the AEFE network of nearly 500 French schools in 130 countries worldwide and provides a unique education with a Canadian, a French and an international perspective. The educational and cultural experience of our students is enhanced by field trips and school trips, especially to Europe. The committed staff provide a caring and supportive environment that encourages students to fully develop their intellectual, physical and creative potential?

  • Pedagogies and subject courses

  • Mathematics Traditional Math

      Traditional Math typically teaches a method or algorithm FIRST, and THEN teaches the applications for the method. Traditional algorithms are emphasized and practiced regularly: repetition and drills are frequently used to ensure foundational mastery in the underlying mathematical procedures. The traditional approach to math views math education as akin to building a logical edifice: each brick depends on the support of the previously laid ones, which represent mastery over a particular procedure or method. Traditional Math begins by giving students a tool, and then challenges students to practice using that tool an applied way, with progressively challenging problems. In this sense Traditional Math aims to establish procedural understanding before conceptual and applied understanding.

    Literature Traditional

      In traditional literature programs students focus on decoding the mechanics of texts: plot, characterization, and themes. These texts tend to include a balance of contemporary and “classic” literature. When studying a past work, students investigate its historical context -- but only insofar as this adds understanding to the work itself. Past works are therefore studied “on their own terms”, and not merely as historical artifacts to be deconstructed: traditional literature programs are firmly rooted in the humanities, and carry the belief that great literature can reveal fundamental and universal truths about the human condition. These programs emphasize class discussions and critical essay writing, and aim to develop in students critical thinking, communication skills, and a cultivated taste and ethos.

    Preschool/K Curriculum Academic

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

    Academic-based preschools and Kindergartens are the most structured of the different types, and have a strong emphasis on math and reading readiness skills. These programs aim to expose children to what early-elementary school is like. While time is still allotted to free play, much of the day is built around explicit lessons guided by the teacher. Classrooms often resemble play-based ones (with different stations set up around the room), but at an Academic program the teacher leads students through the stations directly, and ties these activities to a whole-class lesson or theme.

    What LYCEE LOUIS PASTEUR says: The full-time Maternelle program (from 3 to 5 year old) is the springboard that prepares our students for elementary school. The variety, fun and wealth of experience prepares them for more systematic learning in later grades. Through song, games, painting, sculpture, and classroom work, students master the basics of writing, math, and develop their own learning abilities.

    Stories & Testimonials


    « How it feels to be part of the Lycée community »

    In the ten years she has been a student, Chloé Ligier has dived into the wide range of programs and experiences offered by the Lycée Louis Pasteur.

    A challenging dual French and Albertan curriculum

    The youngest child of a family of five with a French dad and Canadian mom, Chloé loves the small class sizes at the Lycée and, in her words, the teachers who “do their utmost not to leave anyone in the dust”. She recognizes the high standards of the dual French and Albertan curriculum at the Lycée and how they help her to push and challenge herself, with particular reference to her baccalaureate program and its supervised project work.  Chloe relishes the bonds and kinships that are formed at the Lycée and has chosen to remain a long term student – much to the delight of her parents!

    Like her two older sisters who attended the Lycée before her, Chloé has worked hard on both her French and English since kindergarten, or what is known as Grande Section in the Lycée’s Maternelle program. She confided that French became much easier after grade 6 when she felt that more students arrived from France and she began to make lots of French friends and speak their language with them socially.

    A strong third language made fun with exchange programs

    While Chloé started Spanish classes in grade 6 with her classmates, she really wanted practice beyond her classroom setting. You can imagine how thrilled she was when the Lycée Louis Pasteur signed an exchange program convention with the Lycée Français d'Alicante Pierre-Deschamps (LFA) in Spain! In the fall trimester of 2013, an exchange student came to Calgary to stay with the Ligier family and attended the Lycée with Chloé. In January 2014, it was Chloé’s turn to travel to Alicante where she stayed with her exchange family, who live just 15 minutes’ drive from the LFA. Her host family was really easy to get along with and even took her on trips to Madrid and Cordoba. They spoke exclusively in Spanish and Chloé found her language skills improving by leaps and bounds. She still gets in touch her new Spanish family, as well as a school friend, on birthdays and special holidays.


    She treasures friendships with students from different places and makes the most of the lively multicultural debate in classes because she believes they foster open-mindedness. She has had a chance to meet students from countries including Colombia who study at the LLP for a year through its homestay program, and still touches base with several friends from the institution who have returned to their home countries over the years.
