Before You Apply: The American Section Admissions Handbook

In this section, we provide additional background and orientation that will help you before beginning your formal application to the American Section.

In determining if the American Section is right for your family, we think it important to start by discussing our core values and culture. The American Section prides itself on the dynamic role it plays in the Lycée International. We stress openness, curiosity, and compassion, themes that are applied in our academic programs, extracurricular activities, and social events.

Our academic program and community outreach are challenging and ambitious. They require considerable personal investment from both students and their parents, producing students who are bilingual, bicultural, and truly international. We expect active participation on the part of students, parents, faculty and staff in the multitude of programs offered and in fundraising efforts. Giving of our time, talent, and resources is part of our DNA.

Before applying, we ask that you read our Admissions Handbook, which answers most common questions and includes step-by-step application instructions and details for each grade level.
