The lycée is the second, and last, stage of secondary education in the French educational system. Famous lycées in Paris include: Lycée Henri IV and Lycée Louis-le-Grand.

At the end of the final year of schooling, most students take the baccalauréat diploma.

Lycées are divided into (i) the lycée général, leading to two or more years of post–baccalauréat studies, (ii) the lycée technologique, leading to short-term studies, and (iii) the lycée professionel, a vocational qualification leading directly to a particular career. General and technological education courses are provided in 'standard' lycées, while vocational courses are provided in separate professional lycées.
