International Baccalaureate Enrollment



 For years, the Lycée Français de Chicago has administered an exemplary French Baccalaureate program for high-school students.  We would bring that same expertise to our International Baccalaureate Diploma programme  by opening opportunities for English-speaking students of all backgrounds and nationalities.

• Students entering the 9th, 10th or 11th grade with a strong academic performance record.  
• The IB Diploma Programme is designed for college-bound students motivated to embark on a rigorous educational challenge.
