The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme and single IB Certificate Courses in Lausanne's Upper School provide students a challenging and well-rounded education while encouraging the pursuit of individual special interests in preparation for the college and university level.
Upper School students complete most of their graduation requirements between 9th and 10th grades enabling them to create schedules during their 11th and 12th grade years designed to enhance their college admittance to their school programs of choice.
Students can tailor their experience with over 100+ course offerings in Anthropology, Business, Computer Science, English, Languages (French, Spanish, Mandarin), Math, Psychology, Science, Sports & Health Sciences, and the Visual and Performing Arts.
The Upper School program is built around a seven-period schedule where class times rotate within a seven-day cycle. Students at all grades generally take six (6) courses and a study hall. In some circumstances it is possible for students to take seven (7) courses.

Students are strongly encouraged through their club and organizational memberships to become involved in service learning activities within the immediate and global community. Students will work with their advisors to focus their efforts and document the number of volunteer hours that they participate in while at Lausanne.
Most students participate in one or more varsity or junior varsity sport each year. Lausanne enjoys a rich tradition of athletic achievement within the TSSAA arena.
