While we follow a standard eight hour school day, students move about to classes as they might at college. Some will wake at 8am for an Economics class that begins at 8:30am and lasts until 10am, and follow up with classes through 2:30pm. While others might start their day at 10am with an art class, only to end at 5pm when Calculus has finished.
Lunch is served family style at noon every day, and lasts for one hour, as is the French custom. When students are not in a class, they have time to meet with tutors and teachers for extra help, accumulate PE hours through hikes, bike rides, and running, study on their own or practice music with friends.
After school activities vary, from music lessons to trips to Narbonne or Perpignan, or even hanging out at a local coffee shop or bookstore. Students meet up again for a school wide dinner with staff, and spend their evenings in study hall or in free time with their friends.
