After High School

After the last year of High School (Terminale), students have to make a choice for their future studies according to their:

  • subjects of interest

  • professional projects

  • academic capacities and learning methods

Students must be aware of what might thwart their project.

Students must be prepared for alternative solutions.

Students must be keen and actors of their own projects.

They must seek information by questioning former students and professionals, read specialized publications, refer to all the documentation available at the Lycée’s CDI (school library) and visit Internet websites devoted to vocational guidance like ONISEP (Office National d’Information sur les Enseignements et les Professions).

They must  consider 6 questions:

  1. What job do I want to do later? Think of professional fields and/or personal interests.

  2. How long am I ready to study after the “baccalauréat”? 2 years, 3 years, 5 years, 8 years, more….

  3. What’s better for me? autonomy or supervision?

  4. What kind of teaching do I prefer? Vocationally-orientated? Theoretical?

  5. Can I change fields later?

  6. How much do these studies cost?

Mobility of Chateaubriand’s students

After the “Baccalauréat”, the newly graduated students often choose the most brilliant paths, a proof of the high quality teaching that has been bestowed upon them during their younger years.

Each year, the geographical distribution of our “post- baccalauréat” students is more or less as follows :

  • 30% France

  • 30% Italy

  • 30% English speaking countries (Mainly Great Britain)
