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 third year, three tracks are available: Economics and Sociology, Life Sciences or General Sciences.


The International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IBDP) is a two-year course of study 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 International Baccalaureate diploma program, students will be eligible to enter local universities at the sophomore level. IB students are accepted at high-ranking colleges and universities in Europe and North America, including Harvard, MIT, McGill, and other institutions of tertiary education.


The French Baccalaureate Program, follows the curriculum established by the French Ministry of Education. This program fosters self-discipline and organization while encouraging the development of critical thinking and analytical skills. 

In grades 9-12, students take courses from the common core. 

In grade 11, students add three advanced specialty courses, each of which meets for six hours per week. 

In grade 12, students narrow their specialty courses to two, each of which meets for eight hours per week. Students complete the equivalent of high-honours level coursework in specialty courses. 

The Baccalaureate final grade will be based on both continuous assessment (40% of the final grade) and examination results (60% of the final grade) with written and oral examinations in grades 11 and 12.

Since 2022, the students will take the exams at IC… at home.

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.
