Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Our philosophy stems from the principles found in the ideal of the "Renaissance Man," someone who was well versed in a variety of subjects and renowned for his/her ability to reason clearly. Today, we at the Lycee International attempt to create modern "Renaissance Students" whose knowledge will guide and assist them and whose enjoyment of learning will never cease.
From our beginnings we have dedicated ourselves to preparing students to enter a larger world as educated and responsible adults. Our purposes are:
to inculcate a perspective that extends beyond the borders of the student's own country and culture
to create open and orderly minds in a secular and humanistic environment
to graduate students who can achieve acceptance and success both in Europe and the United States.
The goals are fulfilled in two languages and through two cultures. The school bases its curriculum on and embraces the philosophies of the French educational system. Combined with this is the heart of the American system which values nurturing the individual.
Through the cultures of these two countries, students learn about the world at large. This demands that students follow a rigorous program which prepares them for further studies in colleges and universities in the United States and abroad.
The cornerstone of our school is the belief that a quality education is one of life's necessities. We feel that our beliefs and values have produced a school which develops individuality through the creation of a firm foundation.
