Since its founding in 1964, the Lycée’s mission is to develop the minds and character of its students. Children start at three years of age and the staff is truly blessed to watch them grow intellectually into fine young men and women on their way to college after their senior year. It is one of the only schools in Southern California to offer a full program from preschool to the 12th grade.
Over 50 years ago, Le Lycée’s founders, Esther and Raymond Kabbaz, saw that to truly equip a child for the modern world, a school needed to provide each child with the ability to learn, to think, and to make decisions based on a sound foundation of logic, knowledge, and character. In this ever-shrinking world, they saw the advantage of teaching children within a microcosm of the worldwide community. They understood the value of a International Education adapted for a modern world. They viewed the children as not just students to process through an educational system, but as whole people in need of a life of purpose and meaning. The school continues their vision to this day.
