Students are placed across France. They have the opportunity to:

 – choose their preferred destination: they list three larger regions of France (South-East, South-West, North-East, North-West) in order of preference and is done the best to find the best possible match for them.

 – they accept to be placed in any region depending on where the best match is found. The placement is made in matching a student with a family according to various criteria including their common interests, hobbies and activities.

Host families are volunteer and all really enthusiastic to offer a warm welcome to the student and eager to share their way of life . They look forward to learning more about the student’s life in his/her home country. The student will be given the chance to go to a French school – “collège” or “lycée” – with a host sibling or a neighbour (the French student and the participant may not be in the same class and may not even be in the same

school, in rare cases).



French secondary education is divided into two tiers: the “collège” for the first four years (Grades 6-9); and the “lycée” for the last three years (Grades 10-12). Completion of secondary studies leads to the “baccalauréat”. The school director makes the decision regarding grade and placement level for international students, taking into account the school organization, the students’ transcripts and their French level.

In France, students spend a lot of time at school. Generally speaking, they start school at 8am and finish at 5pm or 6pm, there is a 1-hour break at lunchtime and most students eat lunch at school. During weekdays, participants will attend all classes whatever the subjects are: French, Mathematics, History, Geography, English, Spanish, Science, Arts, Sports and many other options. The aim of this school integration is to discover the French school system, and, overall, have a social integration with French teenagers. Enrolment and school attendance, lunches, school fees and school transportation are included in the package.
