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).

Children who are 6 years old, or who will turn 6 during the first term of the school year, are admitted.

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

Choosing a school for your child

You can choose between:

 

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

In the state sector, the school your child will attend depends on the geographical area  in which you live. If you wish your child to attend a school in a different area, you should send a letter to the Department of Education, Youth and Sport before 1st May, requesting an area exemption. 

While awaiting a reply, you should enrol your child in the school in your area.
