The Program


L'Académie de Paris is an academic program for students in grades 9-12 held in the Lycée Notre Dame de Sion, a top independent school in the heart of Paris, France.

While we offer intensive French language courses at all levels from pure beginner to advanced, there is no French language requirement for this program, as more than half of our twenty courses offered are taught in English. Whatever their priorities, students come away with a new understanding of the subject matter as well as an expert familiarity with Paris.

The international faculty includes scholars, academics, and creative professionals such as artists, photographers, filmmakers, and writers from Paris and elsewhere. Together with program administrators, including Program Deans and Activities Directors, students enjoy a daily schedule that combines intellectual and curricular adventure, cultural enrichment, field trips, guest speakers, activities, and sports, all in a safe, supervised environment.

L'Académie de Paris is sponsored by The Foundation for International Education in cooperation with Oxbridge Academic Programs.
