Headmaster's welcome

Welcome to the website of Monnet-Mermoz High School. It will give you access to a virtual visit of the school. Our 1,100 students can attend forms ranging from 3ème PREPRO (vocational Year 10) to BTS (2-year post A Level courses).

Our educational offer spans a range from academic A Levels in Economics and Sciences to Technological A Levels specialising in social work and healthcare (BAC ST2S), industrial sciences and techniques applied to sustainable development (Bac STI2D), and sciences and techniques applied to management and business studies (Bac STMG). We also offer four vocational A Levels : ELEEC, MEI, MVA, SEN. Post A Level studies are available thanks to our on-site higher education diplomas : BTS CRSA, IRIS, MUC, SIO. These are 2-year post A Level degrees in automated systems, computer science and business studies.

Our wide range of courses meets today's job market's expectations and local needs in terms of employment. It allows not only young people from Cantal but also students from surrounding regions to engage in relevant studies.

Our school is also home to the GRETA des Monts du Cantal, an institution which provides sandwich training like the 2-Year post A Level course called BTS CGO (a diploma focusing on accountancy and management). Besides, The MGI center, which is also on site, aims at helping those with no qualification and career prospects to define new training and potential employment goals.

Complex as our institution may seem, it is nonetheless a place where welcoming, integrating and supporting individuals prevail. For this purpose, staff members have devised an innovative support protocol for all Seconde (year 11) students. This protocol contributes to a better integration of our younger students and enables us to reduce failing risks. Similarly, we intend to help vocational A Level students to achieve the highest qualification that is available to them. This emphasis laid on tailored student support allows us to see a substantial proportion of vocational students continue to learn and take higher education degrees. Seeing them leave school without any qualification is extremely rare.

Our school has been awarded the « Lycée des Métiers » seal of approval. It testifies to our specialism in sciences and techniques that are applied to industry and services. Our high-tech IT infrastructure contributes to the enhancing of our specialism. Besides, we endeavour to upgrade our computing equipment regularly, which allows us to use cutting-edge technology in both industry and service departments.

Extracurricular activities are also part of life in our school. They are high-quality sport or culture oriented activities. Thus students can choose from a variety of teachings comprising dance, art, BIA (Introduction to Aeronautics Certificate) and sports clubs . Students who are doing very well in sports like climbing, swimming or rugby can belong to specific sports groups (sections sportives) and benefit from a tailored timetable.

Our students' involvement in school life, our high-quality boarding school , and the dedication of staff members all guarantee that students have very enjoyable living conditions.

These are the many reasons why Monnet-Mermoz High School is a place worth discovering. I'd like to share with you Albert Camus' maxim which meant in substance that showing genuine generosity towards the future implies giving everything to the present.
