The School and its Mission

Founded in 1966, Lycée International de Calgary (formerly Lycée Louis Pasteur) is a nondenominational private school for Grades PK-12 and the only school in Calgary teaching the French Ministry of Education (MOE) and Alberta Education curricula. This differentiates the Lycée Calgary from the French Immersion and Francophone schools in Calgary. With an enrolment of 450+ students,
representing 34 nationalities and all linguistic backgrounds, Lycée Calgary embodies a true multicultural and multilingual school. It delivers “the best of what Europe and Canada have to offer” in terms of academic excellence, and physical and emotional well-being.

Lycée Calgary is also the only member in Calgary of the prestigious Agency for French Education Abroad (AEFE), a network of over 500 schools in 140 countries. It is one of only 8 member schools in Canada. Students Grade 9 and older may enjoy the unique opportunity of spending a trimester or year abroad at other AEFE network schools.

Lycée Calgary students are well prepared for the Brevet Exams (Grade 9) awarded by the French MOE; the French Baccalaureate (Grade 12), recognized for university entrance worldwide; the Alberta Provincial Achievement tests (Grades 6-9) and the high school Diploma Exams (Grade 12).

To support its mission, “to provide a challenging and stimulating bilingual education within a multicultural and multidisciplinary environment” and its vision, “education for vision in the global community,” Lycée Calgary’s strategic plan has three pillars: educational excellence, a vibrant community that develops the next generation of leaders, and a sustainable future including enhanced eco-friendly and environmentally sustainable facilities, and financial growth and stability.

Lycée Calgary has established the Diversity and Belonging Committee, an ad hoc committee of the Board, whose purpose is to support and cultivate the development, among all Lycée community members, of a deep appreciation for diversity and a celebration of our differences. This encompasses issues of diversity, equity, inclusion/inclusivity, anti-racism, indigeneity, social justice and human rights.
