Every year, about two-thirds of Rochambeau graduates attend universities in the US, Canada, the UK, and various other countries. The University Counselor handles all aspects of students' applications to these universities--mostly Anglophone--outside France and the rest of Europe.
The University Counselor's Mission
The University Counselor works with students during the process of applying to colleges in many countries:
At Rochambeau, students are able to obtain both the Maryland high school diploma and the French Baccalauréat. The majority of Rochambeau students meet all Maryland high school curricular requirements and are awarded the Maryland high school diploma at the end of their première year, the year preceding the final year of French secondary education. By virtue of the academic breadth of the French education system, students at Rochambeau usually exceed the Maryland high school diploma requirements.
The final year of study at Rochambeau (terminale) is devoted to preparing students for the French Baccalauréat examination, which alone qualifies students for admission to the French university system. Students of any nationality who obtain the French Baccalauréat diploma are automatically eligible to attend university in France.
Rochambeau offers various types of preparation for US standardized tests from troisième (9th grade) through première (11th grade):
Although Rochambeau's curriculum does not include official AP (Advanced Placement) courses, students may prepare for AP exams on their own and take any desired AP exams at Rochambeau in the spring. Students taking AP language exams typically make top scores.
Naviance Family Connection enables students and parents to learn about university representative visits, search for colleges and universities, find career information, search for financial aid and scholarships, and more.
Students are given access before their terminale year begins. In Family Connection they can see the status documents sent by Rochambeau to universities, create a résumé, and sign up for college visits.
