  • With confirmation of registration, we will send you an invoice for the total amount of your stay.
  • alpha.b asks you for a deposit of 25% of the invoice to guarantee your place.

For underage students

  • For students under the age of 18, parents must complete a discharge of responsability and acknowledgment of risks for minor child. Click here to download it.
  • The parents must be informed that alpha.b is a French school, fully respecting the European Norm EN14804 and cannot be considered at a summer camp or campus for minors.
  • Indeed, the parents need to understand that alpha.b cannot be held responsible of their child’s behaviour outside of the school and that alpha.b cannot monitor their child outside of its premises, even if their child is absent from class.
  • Besides, if the minor student is accommodated in a host family, the host family is not responsible for the child’s behaviour outside the supervised time decided with the school : from 7 pm until 8.30 am. Unless the parents have decided otherwise in the discharge of responsability.
  • Therefore, parents who choose our programme must be confident that their child is mature, independant and responsable enough to go out alone and use public transportation without any adult supervision.
  • More detailed information in our Discharge of responsability form.
