Student Life

Primary - Clubs and Activities

The Lycée offers extended after-school childcare, bilingual language study support, as well as clubs and activities for students in Nursery to Fifth Grade. A complement to our academic programs and taught by Lycée teachers and a team of after-school instructors, the program is constantly innovating to meet the interests of Lycée students.


After-Care or Garderie

Monday to Friday from 2:30pm to 5:45pm

Supervised by our Teaching Assistants, Garderie offers the families of our preschool students greater flexibility when it comes to afternoon pickups.  Depending on the child's age, the program builds on the classroom environment with age-appropriate activities in art, music, science, cooking, literature, and many other fields. It promises to keep preschoolers engaged and active while they wait to be picked up.

Bilingual Study Hall

Students in First to Fifth Grade
Monday to Friday afternoon: support for French or English homework 


Study hall provides a calm and supportive environment as they wait for a parent/guardian or siblings in Secondary School to take them home. With dedicated support from English and French teachers, study hall is also  helpful for families whose children are learning in a language that is not their own. Study hall is the perfect place to finish homework, classroom projects, go over what they have been studying, and ask questions. Study hall is offered every school day, and places students in small groups to ensure they receive individual attention.

Clubs and Activities

With an assortment of after-school clubs, students have the opportunity to explore their passions and expand their horizons from many cultural perspectives.

Seasonal Day Camps

The Lycée offers dedicated day-camps in the summer, fall, winter, and spring. Our mission is to provide fun, innovative opportunities to learn for children aged 3-8 in a supportive, creative and playful environment. Our campers from all over the world will feel at home and be fully immersed in the French language.

Making the most of our exciting spaces for creating and making, campers take part in a range of activities tailored to their level of development in groups of 10-12 children. Programs in art, music, cooking, crafts, storytelling and theater offer campers engaging ways to develop their curiosity and strengthen their French-language skills.
