  1. The Lebanese Baccalaureate, in either English or French. In both the French and English tracks, all subjects are taught in these two languages except social studies and Arabic literature. In the second year of the Lebanese Baccalaureate, students are promoted into the Humanities, Economics and Sociology, Life Sciences or General Science.
  2. The French Baccalaureate Program is offered primarily to fulfill the needs of foreign and Lebanese students who wish to obtain the French Baccalaureate. All core subjects are taught in French. Students can also opt to study a fourth language and electives in subjects such as Art.
  3. The International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IBDP) is a two-year course of study (the first year being spent in one of the other programs) designed for motivated secondary school students. The program has earned a reputation for academic excellence and rigorous assessment, giving IB diploma holders access to the world's leading universities. Upon completion of the Lebanese, French or International Baccalaureate program, students will be eligible to enter university at the sophomore level in all English speaking universities in Lebanon, as well as, other high-ranking colleges and universities in Europe and North America, including Harvard, MIT, McGill, the Sorbonne and other institutions of tertiary education. 
  4. The College Preparatory Program (CPP) is modeled on the American High School program. After successful completion of the coursework, a CPP student is awarded the IC diploma, which allows eligibility to enter a university at the freshman level.
