César

 

César is one of four collèges with an Anglophone section for which ASEICA provides teachers. This is a new collège, completed in 2008. The section was opened in September 2012 starting with an intake of two classes at sixième level. 

ASEICA is committed to working with Education Nationale supporting the expansion of the Anglophone program in response to the strong interest among local families for international education.

Students taking the sixième admissions test, or coming from the Trois Collines and Ecole Elémentaire Sartoux primary international sections, will be allocated to César or one of the other three collèges according to where they live. Most of the students at César are drawn from the area Roquefort les Pins and Le Rouret.

After successfully completing the collège program, including the International Brevet exam, international section students from all four collèges move together into lycée at the CIV where they will prepare for the OIB.

CIV

 

The Centre International de Valbonne has housed an Anglophone section since 1978. In the collège, there are four Anglophone section classes from 6ème through to 3ème.

Students who are successful in the sixième entry test administered by the Inspection Académique, or who come from the international primary classes of Trois Collines and École Sartoux, are allocated either to the CIV or one of the other collèges with international sections. The process is managed by Éducation Nationale and the decision is driven essentially by the question of catchment area, with children being allocated as far as possible to their local collège (collège de secteur).

Newcomers to France whose French language skills are poor will be allocated to the CIV, which is the only college to have classes for beginners in French (FLE).
