Our Bachelor in French


Pouvoir, vouloir, savoir, trois mots qui mènent le monde.
Victor Hugo

In 2010, after pursuing a fulfilling teaching career in France and in the United States, I decided to create Prépa Climax, and to set off – along with our faculty and our students – on a new and exciting adventure.

Today, our institution has become one of the leading university preparatory schools in France.

The success of our programs originates from the quality of our training and the competency of our team – composed of leading international experts and prolific academic researchers –, from an adaptive, student and project-oriented approach, and thanks to the benefits of an ideal work environment, right next to the Palace of Versailles, a few miles away from the very center of Paris, and at the heart of Europe.

Since its foundation, Climax Education has helped hundreds of students pursue their aspirations, develop their full potential, and achieve exciting and prosperous careers in the fields of politics, diplomacy, journalism, research, teaching and entrepreneurship, among others.

It is our pride and joy to give our students the environment and training they need to fulfil their ambitions, and to encourage them to become better by learning from the best, find courage in adversity, dare explore new horizons, and eventually rise as high as their dreams may reside.
