About Us Our school is a great fit for

Students who feel disengaged in their schools

  • Our academically-rigorous programs are tailored for your child’s needs to help them rediscover the love of learning.

Middle schoolers who feel like they don’t fit in

  • We focus on socialization and include activities built to encourage meaningful relationships. 

Students with diverse learning needs

  • Children with ADHD/ADD, Autism Spectrum Disorders, as well as twice-exceptional (and gifted) kids, are often insufficiently supported within a "traditional" setting. Our inclusive approach includes differentiated study plans and support of certified educators and psychologists.

Expats and travelers

  • Wherever your family is, your child can continue their studies with us. For most countries, we guarantee that our students will be able to pass their national exams.

How our school works

Our innovative approach combines synchronous distance learning with intensive in-person study sessions. Your child will study from home for a total of six months — but will travel to three week-long sessions in France four times a year. Distance learning includes 5-6 interactive classes a day. Each class has 3-6 students and every student has a personalized learning plan. 

In-person sessions at the Chateau Le Sallay in Burgundy bring all the students together. These sessions combine classes with games and activities aimed at helping students develop their social skills. Our mentors and psychologists work with students throughout the year to oversee socio-emotional development and foster positive classroom experience.
