Where our Grads Go
Scotland, England, Netherlands, Spain, France, Switzerland, Germany, Austria, the United States, Ireland, Canada ….
We organize a post-bac orientation meeting for seconde and première students and parents to educate them about college options and guide them through the UCAS, Common Application and Parcoursup application process.
Teachers offer college guidance tips to help students research universities, explore careers, write personal statements and application essays.
What our Grads Say
“The transition to classe préparatoire wasn’t too difficult in terms of academic expectations and work because the LFA did a great job of preparing me. The work load didn’t surprise me, and doing the OIB has been a huge advantage: English class doesn’t require as much work (as most students are learning it as a foreign language), and most of what we did last year in history and geography is extremely useful this year since the curriculums are very similar.”Capucine, classe préparatoire EC-S, Lycée Sainte-Geneviève
“I strongly believe that the SIA prepared me very well for my studies: I find myself constantly reapplying knowledge gained at the LFA, be it in probability, proof by induction, or German. I expect that the programme will become harder as I begin to lose the head start given to me by the LFA.”Julian, Computer Science, University of Bristol
“The LFA really helps you to get into the good schools, but once you are in, you are in competition with students who have had a very similar level of education. The major advantage of the LFA is the practice in essay writing we have. Not very many students have had as much practice.”Elise, Economics, Politics and International Studies, Warwick University
“I can say that my experience in the section has helped me, both in terms of close friends with whom I have stayed in contact, and in terms of experience in managing many different tasks at once. Earlier on in the year, I patently had less trouble organising my workload than others in my class, thanks to my OIB years.”Masha, Prépa BCPST, Henri IV, Paris
