The LFC Approach

An outstanding education is the beginning to a lifelong journey.

With state-of-the-art facilities, highly-qualified staff and a small teacher-to-student ratio, we’re able to create a customized, student-centered, multilingual program that will allow your child to individually shape the course of their journey.

From Pre-K to 12th grade, we believe in a holistic approach that does not teach to test – it teaches to learn. With outstanding academic results and university acceptance rates, the lessons taught here go far beyond these walls.

LFC is proudly accredited to offer the French Baccalaureate (pre-K to 12) and the International Baccalaureate (Grades 9-12). In addition to receiving an Illinois High School Diploma, all high school students at the LFC have the opportunity to graduate with either the French Bac or the IB diploma.

Through LFC's bilingual+ curriculum, international exposure and personalized approach, students become equipped to meet the challenges of an increasingly global world. 

No background in French or English is required except for Grades 4 to 8, but interest in an international experience is a must. 

Our Core Values

Respect: We embrace and celebrate our cultural identities and differences and come together in our understanding and empathy for one another. We are French, we are American, we are international – we are welcoming of all.

Responsibility: We believe in our role as citizens of the world and are committed to furthering a global perspective within the Lycée and Chicago communities. We hold ourselves accountable to the highest of standards, demanding honesty, fairness, and accountability for our words and actions.

The Joy of Teaching and Learning: Through inspired teaching, we instill in our students a lifelong love of learning. We teach the best of the French, American and International educational systems. We give our students the gift of languages, independence and a global outlook going beyond mere learning to transform lives. We insist on a multilingual, multinational and multicultural faculty, staff and administration that fosters a dynamic learning environment for all.

Being Bilingual+

Language has the power to break down barriers, connect cultures and broaden understanding.


Gain a powerful global perspective at LFC, where cultural diversity and language immersion are catalysts.

School Trips

Every year, the LFC organizes group learning experiences for students away from the Chicago campus. Each trip creates experiences that help instill each student with a global perspective.
