AEFE, our network, our school

Founded in 1990, the Agence pour l'enseignement français à l'étranger (AEFE) is a national institution supervised by the French ministry for Foreign Affairs and International Development. Depending on the capacity of each establishment, these school offer public education to French children living abroad. They also contribute to the prestige of the French language and culture and the strengthening of relations between French educational institutions and those of other countries. The main objective of the AEFE is to serve and promote a unique worldwide educational network made up of approximately 500 schools present in 136 countries.

The AEFE is present all over Italy with 6 schools:

  • 2 schools managed directly by the AEFE: the Lycée Chateaubriand (with establishments in Rome and Naples) and the Lycée     Stendhal in Milan;

  • 1 school bound to the AEFE by an administrative, financial and educational contract: the Lycée Jean Giono in Turin;

  • 2 partner schools: the Institut Saint-Dominique in Rome and the Lycée Victor Hugo in Florence.

The Lycée Chateaubriand, the only AEFE school in Rome, is also responsible for a number of other projects organised by the AEFE schools in the South East region of Europe: the implementation of decentralised public services and means for the region. Under the supervision of the Comité de Pilotage de la Mutualisation (CPM), the Lycée Chateaubriand administers and finances a number of projects within its region, most importantly continuing education plans for school personnel.

The Lycée Chateaubriand is also the Rome exam centre for the Baccalaureate, and hosts the examining board for the Baccalaureate in the South East region of Europe, and the examining board for the Diplôme National du Brevet in Italy.
