Our Story

Lycée Louis Pasteur is Calgary's premier French school. As a non-denominational private school, we welcome students ages 3 years old to Grade 12. We are located in the quiet, residential neighborhood of Garrison Woods.

We are the only school in Calgary to teach the French Ministry of Education and Alberta Education curricula. Lycée Louis Pasteur is the only school in Calgary to offer programming of this nature.  

The French curriculum is taught in French by French speakers, the majority of whom have received their teaching credentials from the French Ministry of Education. English is taught beginning in Kindergarten until Grade 12. For more information regarding English hours of instruction, see the FAQ in our Maternelle, Elementary, Junior High and High School pages. Spanish is added to the curriculum in Grade 6 and is taught until Grade 12.

In addition to offering a unique curriculum, Lycée Louis Pasteur is a member of the AEFE, a network of 495 schools in 137 countries. In Canada, there are eight lycées. Lycée Louis Pasteur is the only school in Calgary to be a member of this prestigious network. To learn more about lycée's, visit our What's a Lycée page.
