OFALycée is the first institution to offer online, supplemental French Baccalaureate education to students in the United States or anywhere else in the world.

With careers ranging from 15 to 20+ years of experience in the French, American, and International educational systems, OFALycée teachers offer the best online curriculum thanks to a unique digital educational approach as well as weekly personalized follow-up in all subjects.

Supplement your student’s education and maintain their proficiency in French at the highest level.

Small class sizes means your student gets plenty of attention and an excellent education.

Keep all options open with a French Baccalaureat degree.

“Our goal is to guide students to ensure they sit their Baccalaureate exams in the best conditions possible, and to show that the French and American education systems can work well together.”

Our School

OFALycée combines schooling in an American high school with a French education from the 6th to the 12th Grade. The objectives are to combine and optimize American programs and French programs in order to perfect a bilingual and bicultural education of excellence. All courses and lessons can be accessed at the student’s convenience.

The program includes interactive exercises plus weekly individualized monitoring in each subject through small sized live tutorials with experienced teachers providing clarification and explanation on previous material and preparation for lessons in the upcoming week. OFALycée maintains a maximum class size of 6 students.

Why choose our school?

Our school is the best choice to perfect a bilingual educational path. Your child is educated in the American system and is taking in parallel online courses to prepare for the French Baccalauréat.
The preparation for the Baccalauréat gives each student added value for a successful transition to higher education. The Baccalauréat is recognized as one of the most demanding program around the world.

All the universities in North America and elsewhere in the world recognize the immense value of the French humanistic educational path that brings a complete citizenship training.

Our Vision

The vision of OFALycée is to bring French international education into the twenty-first century, considering the measure of recent and unprecedented transformations happening in our society in general and the educational world in particular.

The lack of high schools offering the French program in the United States effectively excludes many interested families from the French education system. In addition the growing use of digital education and the wish to offer a complete bilingual education at an affordable price are the determining factors that led us to the creation of OFALycée, the first Franco-American online institution.

Our Mission

To allow the acquisition of the highest level of bilingualism and French-American biculturalism by obtaining the High School Diploma and in parallel preparing for the French Baccalaureate
