Every graduating class is different. These differences manifest themselves at the Lycée in the proportion of students choosing certain Bacs and filières, or the percentage of students who immerse themselves in athletic teams or community service activities. We can also see the differences in where our graduating Terminale choose to attend university.
Students from the class of 2015 waited with nervous anticipation backstage at 92nd street Y for their graduation ceremony on June 11, 2015.
The Class of 2015 will be known for bucking matriculation trends at the Lycée, and choosing their own path. We are proud of this class for making decisions that reflected their academic interests and cultural preferences.
In particular, the Class of 2015 chose French universities in a greater proportion than in years past. A full 19% of the class chose French institutions, compared to 3% last year. Most of these students chose traditional universities, though four will be enrolling in classe préparatoire.
We were also delighted by the growing interest in UK universities. Eight percent of the class is matriculating in the UK, as opposed to 3% last year, with two stellar matriculants to the London School of Economics. In the US, there was a decline in applications, with 30% matriculating in the US, whereas last year 54% matriculated in the US. Note that there are several students headed towards art schools here in the US and across the world.
During graduation, photos of “fidèles” (students who have been at the Lycée since nursery school) are shown on the screen.
As our students are internationally inclined, naturally curious and adventurous, we expect them to continue to investigate their educational options worldwide. It is the mission of our office to know and understand each child, and help each one evaluate the many choices available to them.
