We are the only school in Calgary to teach the French Ministry of Education and Alberta Education curricula.
This year, the Lycée is home to families from 34 nationalities and all linguistic backgrounds. If your family does not speak French at home you are not alone! 77 percent of Lycée families do not speak French at home.
Lycée students are educated in a truly multicultural and multilingual environment, preparing them to become responsible citizens and leaders in a global community.
We are not a French immersion school or a Francophone school.
These schools teach the Alberta Education curriculum in French. Lycée Louis Pasteur teaches the French Ministry of Education and Alberta Education curricula. We are the only school in Calgary to offer programming of this nature.
By teaching the French Ministry of Education and Alberta Education curricula, students get the best of both worlds.
They receive a stellar French education augmented by important Canadian content. Graduates have a deep understanding of both the European culture in which they are educated and the Canadian culture into which they are integrated.
The French curriculum is taught in French by French speakers.
This school year, 96% of the teachers delivering the French curriculum have received their teaching credentials from the French Ministry of Education. The Alberta curriculum is taught in English by English speakers.
