News from the LIFT team!


Tremendous achievements for Lycée International Français de Taipei during the past few weeks, we can’t wait to share it with you!

The Association for French Education and European Culture in Taiwan (AF2ECT), gathering parents at the forefront of the project, concluded an agreement with the school network Odyssey International, to dedicate all the financial, human and pedagogical means necessary to the success of LIFT.

LIFT will therefore be funded and managed by Odyssey International, a French school network specialized in designing and managing French educational institutions worldwide.


Odyssey school network has been founded by three professionals devoted to promotion of French teaching abroad: Luc CHATEL (President), Jonathan DERAI et Younès SLAOUI (Managing directors).

Odyssey’s three founding-leaders share a common vision of education and entrepreneurship in the educational sphere structured around following key principles:

- Engaging long-term financial commitment to sustain projects;

- Striving for educational excellence;

- Promoting innovativeness and creativity;

- Supporting all talents.

As of now, the Odyssey network gather schools for which the combination of the French academic excellence and dynamism of international schools is at the heart of the educative approach. This alliance of the “best of both worlds” create a unique teaching offer for families of all citizenships, preparing students for the best higher education institutions in the world.

Benefiting from the support of the French government, Odyssey acts within the framework of the principles governing French teaching abroad and is currently in talks to set-up a network agreement with AEFE to bring the partnership beyond AEFE’s accreditation of Odyssey schools and formalize the institutional recognition of Odyssey.
