Lebanese Curriculum


At the AGBU Schools we strive to inspire our children to become effective, enthusiastic, independent and lifelong learners. Our unique curriculum is based on the Lebanese National Curriculum, but it is modified to include international and Armenian affairs and studies, and is often personalized to meet the specific needs and interests of our children.

The curriculum is also innovative and concept-based. This ensures children are provided with multiple opportunities to develop their knowledge, as well as understanding and mastery of competencies, skills and abilities. Lessons are structured to encourage critical thinking, teamwork and collaboration, while also fostering ownership and engagement.

The main curriculum is further enriched by the study of Armenian language, Armenian History and Religion, which immerses our learners in their own heritage and culture, enhances their problem-solving and critical-thinking skills, improves their concentration and their ability to multitask.

  Lebanese Curriculum

The Lebanese Baccalaureate Program, following the curriculum of the Lebanese Ministry of Education, is available to all students in English for core subjects (including Mathematics and the Sciences). In addition, French is taught as a fourth language, beginning from the Kindergarten classes. Social Studies, History, Geography, and Civics are taught in Arabic, along with Arabic literature and language. Philosophy, Sociology and Economics are taught in English.

In Grade 11, students choose a focus on either socio-economics or the sciences, in which they specialize in their third and final year. Learners are assessed by the comprehensive exams set by the Lebanese Ministry of Education at the completion of Grades 9 and 12.
