Principle and conditions

All children aged six to sixteen who are Monegasque nationals or living in Monaco must be enrolled in a state or private school in the Principality (Act no 1.334 of 12 July 2007).

For the second part of their secondary education, children attend a lycée.

Lycées provide education for teenagers aged 15 to 17, from Seconde (Year 11) to Terminale (Year 13). At the end of this three-year programme, students take the baccalaureate examination.

For pupils who are Monegasque nationals or whose parents are legally resident in Monaco, and who are applying to enrol in the Principality for the first time.

For pupils enrolled in 3ème (Year 10) in a Monegasque school.

In other cases, a request for exemption is required from the Department of Education, Youth and Sport (DENJS).

 

School enrolment periods

For the school year 2023-2024, the enrolment periods for schools will take place:

  • In state educational establishments from Wednesday 4 January 2023 to Monday 20 March 2023 inclusive
  • In private educational establishments under contract from Wednesday 04 January 2023 to Monday 20 March 2023 inclusive

 

Outside these periods the online service is accessible by the following link will enable you to carry out this procedure.

Choosing a school for your child

If your child is enrolled in a school outside the Principality or is homeschooled, you are required to inform the Director of the Department of Education, Youth and Sport by submitting a declaration.

The declaration should state the surname(s), first name(s) and date of birth of your child, their address and the details of the school in which they are enrolled.

In addition, I would like to remind you that anyone failing to meet this obligation is liable to criminal prosecution.

You will be subject to the terms and checks set out in Article 5 of Act no. 1.334 of 12 July 2007 concerning education

This option prepares students for the General Baccalaureate and for higher education at a University or a Classe préparatoire (preparatory classes for the entrance examinations to France’s most prestigious universities, the grandes écoles).

Following the reforms to the baccalaureate examinations introduced in 2021, the previous streams (literary (L), economic and social sciences (ES) and scientific (S)) that were available to students studying for the general baccalaureate no longer exist. Instead, each student now chooses their own speciality subjects.
