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 admitted in grades 9 and 10 will participate in course studies and activities designed to prepare them for the two-year IB Diploma Programme which begins at 11th grade.

• 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. 
• Successful students are interested in mastering French as a second language and exploring world cultures. 
• Students are not required to be fluent in a language other than English when they enter the Lycée at the 9th grade level.

Admission Requirements:
