Since 2006, the Lycée has offered a Model United Nations program to 10th through 12th graders.
Model UN is a simulation of the United Nations in which participants are given a forum to discuss global concerns in a context that closely parallels the "real world." Secondary school and college students join faculty from all over the world to engage in lively discussions and substantive debates in their respective committees. Assuming the positions of various Member States on critical issues of our times, the students address regional conflicts, peacekeeping, human rights, women and children, economic and social development, and the environment. This educational experience encourages the development of skills useful throughout their lives, such as research, writing, public speaking, problem solving, consensus building, conflict resolution, and compromise and cooperation.
The Lycée participates in two Model UN conferences, one sponsored by the Latin School of Chicago, the other by the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.
