Organized in cycles: The French educational system is organized in school years, which are grouped into learning cycles.
The teaching team accompanies the students to acquire the knowledge, skills and culture of the common core.

The goal is to be approved at the end of “3ème”. Therefore, three stages are created, consisting of three years each, to give the students time to develop their knowledge.
The acquisition of these skills prepares the students to continue their studies after high school, and to become good citizens.

Educational Offer

The LFSL’s educational offer is consistent with the French National Education programs with an opening to the hosting country through the establishment of a Swedish International Section.

More specifically, at Lycée three alternatives are offered to the students:

After 3ème at the Lycée Français Saint Louis 

The most common is that the students continue their studies at our school by applying to the “2nd” in the Lycée.
Lycée Français Saint Louis offers the Baccalaureate in general education – in 1ère and Terminale: It consists of written and oral tests. To receive the diploma, the student must achieve a grade point average of 10/20.

There has been a reform of the Baccalaureate exam for 2020. The Baccalaureate studies extend over 2 years with continuous control tests and final exams that take place during 1ère and / or Terminale. A major oral exam takes place at the end of the Terminale.

Students are also given the opportunity to take a French International Baccalauréat (BFI).

The Swedish teaching at Lycée Français Saint Louis

A Swedish education is added to the French education so that the students receive a recognized education in Sweden and France.

How do you continue to high school and after

The different members of the teaching group (the management, librarians, teachers), inform the students and prepare them. The main teachers are the main contacts regarding further studies.
Two staff members take care of the daily study guidance at the school: The Language Coordinator and the Information and Reference resource.
