Oxbridge in Paris
Oxbridge in Paris takes place in the Lycée Notre Dame de Sion, a top independent school in the 6th arrondissement, adjacent to the Luxembourg Gardens. The Louvre, the Pantheon, and the Latin Quarter, as well as other world-famous sites, all lie within walking distance.
Students choose a Major and a Minor, in French or in English, from a selection of academic and creative options. Students with two or more years of French can opt for the immersion courses. They can also choose to be part of our Immersion section in the residence.

Full Course List
During their time in Paris, students will discover the museums and attractions that make the City of Lights so famous. They will visit well-known sites such as the Louvre, Musee d'Orsay, and the Eiffel Tower, of course, but there is also a more private Paris to which we will introduce them. This tour of the Parisian's Paris includes visits to the Pere Lachaise Cemetery, the final resting place of Molière, Chopin, Oscar Wilde, and Jim Morrison; and the Marche aux Puces, a bustling flea market with over 2000 stalls. Other activities could include Sunday picnics in the park, visits to the Catacombs, or an excursion to the Canal Saint-Martin.
Accommodation and Rooms
In Paris, students live in a centrally located boarding school. Students are housed in singles or doubles. The rooms are dorm-style and have shared facilities.
Students have access to common areas within the residences. Oxbridge provides every program with computers, so students have daily access to email and social media. The program staff maintains message boards and distributes mail every day.
Students enjoy breakfast and dinner in their residence's dining halls. Breakfast is primarily continental style with choices such as cereal, yogurt, fruit, toast, coffee, and tea. Several options are available at dinner, including a vegetarian dish and a salad bar. Special dinners are regularly held, and each program ends with a formal banquet. Students are responsible for their own lunch, which can be purchased from a college snack bar or one of the many sandwich shops, small restaurants, patisseries, or bodegas near each residence.
After the Program
Shortly after the program, all students and their parents receive a comprehensive set of grade reports, presenting their course syllabus and highlighting their specific contributions and achievements within their course(s). Most of our alumni later ask for additional copies to include in their college applications.
