Dual Diploma

Preparing for higher education with an international course that promotes excellence

The Dual Diploma course is a double diploma - The French Baccalauréat and The American High School Diploma.

Sem Programme

The programme consists of credits.
24 credits must be acquired in a maximum of 4 years of schooling. Monitoring is done exclusively by continuous assessment.
A score of at least 76% (a grade of “C” or higher) is required for each credit to be validated.
The 24 credits are divided into 2 categories:

  • 18, as a common core of the French programme
  • 6 others, with purely American content obtained under the supervision of the American educational authorities


Attached to a real high school in exclusive partnership with the THORNTON ACADEMY High School founded in 1811.

The 6 credits are delivered at a rate of 2 per year:

  • 2 during a long stay in the USA, guaranteeing bilingualism and excellent cultural adaptation.
  • 4 online with the possibility of reducing the online duration to 1 year, by opting for an intensive 4-week session, in addition to the first year online.
