The Ecole d’Humanité is a bilingual, progressive boarding school offering a holistic education. The Ecole’s university-preparatory curriculum develops core academic competencies and fosters 21st century skills. In small classes of six to 10, students are immersed in core subjects through theme-based instruction, where they are encouraged to follow their curiosity, take intellectual risks, and make cross-curricular connections.
The academic program is augmented by an extensive co-curricular program with a wide range of athletic, cultural, and outdoor activities that support the well-rounded development of students.
