LYCÉE FRANÇAIS SAINT LOUIS, ITS MISSION:
The mission of the Lycée Français Saint Louis, which is part of the AEFE international network, is triple:
• to educate French children resident in Sweden,
• to educate children in Sweden whose families have chosen to follow the French school system,
• to educate school children with another citizenship, whose family has chosen the French school system
Our goal is to promote the French language and culture at school, as well as to enable students to discover our hosting country Sweden and its culture.
We follow the French Ministry of Education’s national curriculum and are thus entitled to offer the French degrees such as DNB – Diplôme National du Brevet – at the end of 3ème, the Baccalauréat and the Swedish OIB at the end of Terminale (last year in high school).
At the school, teaching is also given in Swedish: Swedish teaching at LFSL
Admission to the classes in primary school prioritizes children with the following profile:
• children of French families living in Sweden for a limited time, coming from the French school system (eg. a school in France or school within the AEFE network),
• children of families from a third country, who live in Sweden for a limited time and who belong to the French school system (eg. a school in France or a school within the AEFE network),
• children who have siblings who are already enrolled at the school
• in CP, children who have attended our pre-school, Förskolan Lycée Français Saint Louis,
• time the child has been on the waiting list,
• Other cases.
Enrollment in upper secondary school mainly applies to children with the following profile:
• Children from French families living in Sweden for a limited time, coming from the French school system (eg a school in France or a school within the AEFE network),
• Children from families from a third country who live in Sweden for a limited time and who have entered the French school system (eg a school in France or a school within the AEFE network),
• Children from Swedish families, who have completed their entire schooling in the French school system and have chosen to study for a French Baccalauréat.
All children who do not come from the French school system must undergo a level assessment, which determines the possibility of enrolment. https://www.aefe.fr/scolarite/comment-sinscrire

• An invoice for registration fee of SEK 1500

The school is open to children of all nationalities. But from CP (6 years) good knowledge in French is essential.
The admission is based on our capacity (number of students) where the students who are already following the French school system and who are approved at the level stated on the certificate of termination (exeat) and with approved grades are prioritized.
All children who do not come from the French school system must undergo a level test.

Preschool education – “FÖRSKOLA”
The Lycée Français Saint Louis foundation in Stockholm has an agreement with AEFE from CP to Terminale, which means that there is no French “maternelle”. However, the foundation runs a Swedish preschool for children from two years of age, where the Swedish curriculum is followed with about 50% teaching in french.
All children from two years of age with a Swedish social security number, regardless of nationality, can apply to the preschool.
The waiting list entries are made via the registration portal of the city of Stockholm under the following conditions:
• Live and being registered in Sweden
• For families domiciled and registered in Sweden, e-legitimization is necessary.
N.B. For families not domiciled and registered in Sweden, the Kontaktcenter Förskola of the City of Stockholm gives information at the following telephone number: +46 (8) 508 00 508
The allocation of places is based on the capacity of the preschool and according to the following priority criteria:
1) grouping of siblings (brothers and sisters already enrolled in preschool);
2) grouping of siblings (brothers and sisters educated in the international part of our school, from CP to Terminale)
3) Date of registration on the waiting list
4) the child’s age
The preschool fee is calculated according to Stockholm City’s “maximum rate”, which is linked to the family’s income.
- A place at the preschool does not guarantee an automatic integration of the child into the international school (assessment is made when applying to the CP).
- Since the enrollment process for the preschool takes place separately from the AEFE section (CP to Terminale), this means that siblings can be offered a place in the elementary school and upper secondary school, but not necessarily at the preschool.
