Objectives & Resources


The AGESSIA association (Association Gestionnaire Extra Scolaire des Sections Internationales de l’Académie d’Aix-Marseille) was created in 2009 by the students’ parents and operates according to a convention with the Georges Duby High School, duly voted and approved by the board of directors of the school.


Thanks to the parents’ contribution payable for the three years of the programme, AGESSIA is able to finance a secretariat for the English-speaking section as well as all the activities proposed by the association.


AGESSIA’s mission is to de sustain and develop the quality of the English-speaking section.


AGESSIA organizes and manages the foreign English-speaking exams which do not concern the Board of Education.
