The Lycée Chateaubriand follows the classical French high school curriculum and offers a number of extra opportunities and educational choices, as described below and in the summary tables enclosed.

After collège, students can follow their scholarship in lycée.

General path includes three classes: Seconde (2nde), Première (1ère) and Terminale (Tle). It leads “bacheliers” (holders of Baccalauréat) toward long studies, and, in the Lycée Chateaubriand, is divided in three paths:

  • économique et sociale (E.S.) ;

  • littéraire (L) ;

  • scientifique (S).

Class of Seconde: a determination year

Teachings in 2nde include common subjects for everyone (80% of all teachings), “exploration” teachings, and optional teachings. Their goal is to prepare children to the choice of one of the three paths. It allows them to test their skills and tastes before choosing a thread.
