Lycée alumni have spread out around the world, attending colleges and pursuing careers in North America and Europe. The Lycée experience prepares students to thrive in today’s global workforce, enabling our graduates to be comfortable interacting with people from different backgrounds and competent in different cultural settings.

The Lycée invites alumni to engage with school projects and events and to stay in touch with each other through the Lycée’s Alumni Association. The Alumni Association works to support Lycée graduates in reconnecting and maintaining personal and professional relationships. We encourage you to become an active member by sending us your contact information. You will then receive an alumni newsletter and information on upcoming Lycée events and initiatives. 

To become a member of the Alumni Association, send your contact information and year of graduation to Leigh Hansen, President of the Alumni Board, at alumni@lyceechicago.org

"My education at the Lycée caught interviewers’ attention, as it showed that I had been exposed to different cultures. That kind of experience really opens your eyes."
- Marion Duquesnoy, Class of 2007

"I feel so lucky to have grown up in such a multicultural environment - it totally opened me up to the rest of the world in ways that a traditional American school environment would not have."

- Willa Frej, Class of 2009

"Everyone who has spent a little bit of time at the Lycée knows that learning a new language is not just adding new vocabulary to one’s dictionary. To learn a new language is to transform oneself and create new identities. It is difficult, sometimes even painful, and yet invaluable."
- Gabriel Guillaud, Class of 2008

"The teachers at the Lycée really push you to learn, and always made you want to know more. They challenged you to learn from your mistakes, which is an essential part of the programming

- Ninive Mbarga, Class of 2003

"The French educational rigor combined with the American culture is a big plus. There are leadership-enhancing activities at the Lycée that you don’t find in a typical French school, but you do find in a typical American school. It’s a great blend of both."

- Jonathan Pilault, Class of 2008

"The teachers were always there for you, and pushed you in ways that helped me become a more independent person and appreciate different points of view… Sometimes teachers help change your life, and you don’t forget it."
- Gaétan de la Vauvre, Class of 2003
