University Preparation

University preparation is headed up by the Guidance office, who are committed to supporting each student as they identify and develop their interests and strengths and explore their post-secondary options.

Our students have an exciting range of possibilities thanks to the distinctive education they receive at the LFT. With 100% university attendance (75% in English language universities) and French BAC scores well above the average, our students are more than ready to thrive at top universities in Canada, the United States, France and internationally. Moreover, due to the rigor of the French Baccalaureate and the academic calibre of our students, numerous Canadian universities and institutions abroad have offered substantial number of scholarships to our students. Our students have been recipients of the prestigious Schulich Scholarship, Queen’s University Chancellor Scholarship, the University of Toronto Scholars Scholarship and the University of Toronto’s President’s Scholars of Excellence.

English language requirements for Admission to English Canadian Universities

Students who have been studying in North-America for the last three years are not required to sit for any English language exam. It is however best to consult the universities’ websites.  The LFT offers classes to help students prepare for the TOEFL exam. A few options are available.  For the TOEFL, English North American Universities usually require a minimum score between 90 and 100. For the IELTS, English North American Universities usually require a minimum score between 6.5 and 7.5 on the Academic IELTS.

SAT and SAT Subject Tests

Students applying in the US and the UK usually have to write the SAT and sometimes one or two SAT subject tests before December of Grade 12. For practice purposes, students may write the PSAT directly at LFT in October of Grade 11.  Our school offers classes to help students prepare for this exam.
