Exchange program in France

Looking for a student exchange program in France?

If you wish to attend a High School in France but do have no or little French language knowledge, your may enroll in an English speaking student exchange program in FranceNotre-Dame International High School is one of the French international schools offering your the opportunity to study your mainstream subjects in English while you improve your French skills thanks to intensive French courses.  

Notre-Dame International High School Paris welcomes international exchange students in:

  • Grade 10 for a semester or a complete academic year
  • or 2 full years (Grade 11 and 12)
  • and may also consider exchange students for the fall semester in Grade 12.

French language prior knowledge is not a prerequisite. French Beginner courses are provided on campus, as well as Intermediary and Advanced French classes. Exchange students are invited to participate in our French summer course in Paris in August, just before school starts: this will ease their integration into their new life in France.

Exchange students coming from an American High School in the USA or abroad may attend our school for a semester or an academic year and earn academic and language credits counted towards their US High School diploma. They receive a transcript of grades indicating earned credits at the end of each semester. GPA information will also be released.

Exchange students coming from a different school system are also welcome to apply to study at Notre-Dame International High School. Their grades are transferred into the US High School system, allowing them to pursue their current secondary studies. They will be provided with a transcript listing the subjects attended and grade obtained at the end of each semester and can use it to validate their exchange program in their home school.
We may also assist them with administrative processes involved in apostille and convalidation procedures.
