High School Program

Our High School Program (Grades 10 to 12) prepares students to receive their Alberta High School Diploma and the French Baccalauréat, a diploma awarded by the French Ministry of Education and recognized for university entrance throughout the world. 

With both the Alberta High School Diploma and the French Baccalauréat in hand, students are positioned for local or international post-secondary endeavours. 

The Baccalauréat

Over half a million students take the Baccalauréat every year. Many prestigious universities such as McGill, and Harvard offer up to a year’s credit to students with the French Baccalauréat. 

In Canada and the United States, three Baccalauréat streams are offered: Literature, Economics and Social Science, and Science and Mathematics. The Lycée offers the Science and Mathematics stream.
