The collège level is equivalent to the first three years of secondary school in Quebec, and to junior high school and the first year of high school in the rest of Canada. Collège is the beginning of secondary school. At this stage, students are expected to further their learning and continue to develop their thirst for knowledge. The collège curriculum becomes more diverse over time.
When students complete their collège-level studies, they are awarded a first diploma, the National Diploma (Diplôme national du Brevet, DNB).

The lycée level is equivalent to the final two years of high school and the first year of cégep in Quebec, and to the final three years of high school in the rest of Canada.
In addition to pursuing standard subjects, students at the lycée level must select one of nine different specializations in order to focus their education onto more specific subjects. Lycée students attend special orientation sessions designed to help them select a profile that aligns well with the university program of their choice. The curriculum is designed to empower students to reach their personal goals and achieve the level of academic success required to open doors in the future.
When students complete their lycée-level studies, they are awarded a high school diploma (the French baccalaureate), which allows them to attend universities all around the world.
