UPPER SCHOOL
GRADES 9–12

CHALLENGE AND OPPORTUNITY


ASP offers 10 Advanced Placement (AP) courses and 30 International Baccalaureate (IB) classes. Approximately one-third of our seniors are candidates for the IB Diploma each year, and over 90% participate in either the AP or IB program while at ASP.

Our Upper School students consistently achieve remarkable results on AP and IB exams. ASP is the only school in France to offer both a broad selection of AP classes and the full IB Diploma Program. This extensive offering allows students to personalize their academic path to suit their current interests and future aspirations. All of the opportunities available to students in the Upper School lead to admissions at colleges and universities around the world.

Students can choose to complete a full International Baccalaureate program, take a variety of American Advanced Placement exams, take a combination of AP and IB classes, or take standard college preparatory classes. Our Guidance Counselors work with students from their first day at ASP to navigate the rich variety of options and prepare for the academic program best suited to their needs and academic goals. 

Our Grade 9 and 10 programs are designed to prepare students for the academic choices that students are presented with in Grades 11 and 12. Counselors work with students and families at each step of the process to ensure that students can take full advantage of their time at ASP. All academic paths at ASP lead to an American High School diploma and may lead to an IB diploma or AP Scholar designation if requirements of these programs are met.
