The OFALycée concept is based on an alliance of two education systems: the French and American programs integrated into one bilingual and bicultural course from 4th Grade to 12th Grade.


OFALycée offers courses in French and Mathematics from 4th Grade to 10th Grade in cohorts of a maximum of 6 students. These two subjects are the pillars of the academic success of each student in the French system.

In 9th Grade we offer science and history-geography courses for all those who wish to prepare for the Brevet des Colleges.

In 11th and 12th Grade, our students follow the complete course in preparation for the Baccalaureate.

  • This preparation is facilitated by our concept of complementarity: in mathematics, science and languages ​​the knowledge acquired in the American system is transferred and used to fulfill the requirements of the French programs. (See diagrams below)

The French School System

From 4th Grade to 12th Grade, students follow two kinds of courses at OFALycée

  • From 4th Grade to 8th Grade:
    • Synchronous courses
      • The students meet their French and mathematics teachers twice a week.
      • 2×45 min in French and 2x30min in math
  • From 9th Grade to 12th Grade:
    • Asynchronous courses with office hours
      • The students follow the lessons independently on our digital platform CANVAS. Classes are open every week for optimal follow-up.
      • They meet their teachers twice a week in office hours for regular and personalized follow-up. These office hours are 45min or 30min each depending on the importance of the subjects.

Our concept of complementarity brings a new dimension to traditional teaching, capitalizing on the knowledge and skills acquired in another language to facilitate learning in the French program. This represents a reinvention of Franco-American schooling on the didactic, pedagogical, bilingual and bicultural level.
