Study in a French secondary school in France

This IntoFrance programme is designed for Secondary School Students who wish to attend a French school.
For example, this is the perfect programme for Irish students in transitional year.

This programme gives young students the opportunity to discover French culture and way of life, while improving their language skills. Students are placed in caring host families (or boarding schools) and are supervised by our local team during the entirety of their stay. Students attend a local French school, selected by the local coordinator. The participant is treated as if he/she were a French student.

Immersion in a French lycée (secondary school)

Students will spend 5 days per week at school, usually from 8:00 am until 5:00 pm or 6:00 pm, in classes with French classmates. Depending on their age, ­students are placed in either “Troisième” (14-15 years old) or “Seconde” (15-16 years old) or “Première” (16-17 years old). They typically take courses in French ­literature, foreign languages, history, mathematics, economics and science. All classes are taught in French.

Accommodation options

Living in a French host family:
There is no better way to immerse yourself in another culture than to live with a host family. In addition to room and board, host families offer support and guidance to students during the whole stay, while sharing local customs. Our host families are as diverse as our participants. All host families are ­inspected and ­carefully selected by a member of our local team. The matching of the host family and the student is based on the student’s profile, personality and interests. Students will feel at home in France and develop strong long-term relationships.

Boarding school (5-day boarding option):
Students experience the daily routine of the French lycée. They are accommodated as a boarder during the week (Monday to Friday) and share the life of a selected host family during the weekend and school holidays. Placements are offered throughout France.
