The American School of Lyon provides an English-language curriculum based on the American model of education. The school offers instruction with an international scope rooted firmly in the historic, biblical Christianity that is the foundation of Western culture. It seeks to give every student the tools to think creatively and effectively and the ability to understand themselves and the complex world around them.

The American School of Lyon's classical approach applies teaching methods that fit students’ developmental stages of learning. Young children are taught basic skills and facts while older students develop critical thinking, writing, and speaking abilities. The curriculum uses the great literature and classics of the past to help students grasp the events of the present. French is taught at all levels, and all students pursue physical education, music, and other creative arts. In addition, English as a Second Language courses are available for students whose first language is not English. A low student-teacher ratio promotes individual and caring attention for the needs of each student. Students with special needs are accepted when possible.

As the foundation of Western civilization, Christianity is an integral part of the curriculum at The American School of Lyon. The history and content of the Bible are rationally taught so that the truths each student holds about God are his or her own. The goal is that each student be able to recognize and evaluate truth, goodness, and beauty from a Christian worldview, regardless of his or her personal faith. Respect is taught for all people, principle-based ethics, and the importance of understanding different worldviews.

Upon graduation from The American School of Lyon, students receive an American diploma that satisfies all requirements for a US high school diploma and is recognized by the US government, the National Council for Private School Accreditation, and Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. The school is currently developing Advanced Placement (AP) courses for English Literature, American Government, calculus, and biology. Qualified students may earn an Advanced Placement International Diploma that is recognized by a number of European and British Universities.

The American School of Lyon is located on a 2.5-acre campus in a 4,500-square-meter building. It contains purpose-built science labs, as well as computer labs for the elementary and upper schools.
