School experience in La Rochelle

School in La Rochelle (West of France) as a day pupil or at boarding school available all year round with flexible dates and lengths of stay.

The French Institute works closely with its trusted french partners who place students in secondary schools in and around the beautiful seaside town of La Rochelle.

Click below for an example of a secondary school where we send our students:


Host Families

Students are accommodated in carefully selected host families. They offer students individual rooms in comfortable homes (one student per family).

Day pupils stay all week with their host family while students at boarding school stay with their host family at weekends only.

We endeavour to match families and students taking into account interests and any specific wishes of both parties.

Staying with a French family offers a unique opportunity of gaining understanding of the French way of life “from the inside”.

In sharing your hosts way of life, you will enjoy the benefits of complete immersion in the French lifestyle.


La Rochelle

The city has a rich historic and cultural heritage and offers a wide choice of sport and leisure activities:

Take a barge across the Marais Poitevin (green Venice), sunbath by La Rochelle beaches, practice surfing, cruising and other water sports, rent a bike to get around in town, parks, or Marina, or spend an evening at La Rochelle Casino! There are sports and leisure for every taste in La Rochelle!
