For the first three years, pupils follow a common curriculum, in what is known as the observation cycle. Most subjects are taught in the mother tongue. As from the 2014-2015 school year, all pupils will begin to study a second foreign language (L3) from secondary year 1 onwards. In secondary year 3, all pupils study human sciences and religion or ethics in their first foreign language (L2). In secondary year 2, Latin is offered as an option. In secondary year 3, pupils who chose Latin in year 2 continue to study it. For the other pupils, ICT is offered as an option.
