French American BAC

The French American Baccalauréat (Bac Franco Américain) is a synthesis of the best that the U.S. and French secondary education systems have to offer: the Advanced Placement Program (AP) and the Baccalauréat. A joint initiative of the U.S. College Board and the French Ministry of Education.  Students wishing to participate in the BFA must be enrolled in an accredited French high school in the United States. In première (11th grade) and terminale (12th grade). In preparation for the French BAC, students take three AP courses and Exams instead of the three corresponding French classes for the Baccalauréat. AP courses are taken in the participating French high schools, after approval of the syllabi by the College Board. Students take the AP Exams in May of the 11th or 12th grade, depending on the AP course, and take the French Baccalauréat exams according to the normal calendar for the Baccalauréat.
