The Modern Institution of Lebanon, founded in 1959 by Father Michel Khalife, is currently directed by Mr. Mounir Affeich (Academic Director) and Mr. Maroun Khalife (Administrative Director), with the association of many advisory committees: the Establishment Committee, the Pedagogical Committee, the Parents Committee, and the Teachers Committee.
The Modern Institution of Lebanon has an educational and pedagogical structure that welcomes candidates coming from different communities, with different religions, nationalities and ethnics backgrounds. The Institution follows two academic programs that are significantly different yet complementary: the programs were developed by the two Ministries of Education of Lebanon and France according to a differentiated educational system.
The Institution adds to the programs mentioned above a number of extracurricular activities, such as art (painting, sculpture, music, choreography and poetry), martial arts (individual attack and defense disciplines), visiting museums, historical and educational sites... picking apples and olives…, the environment class, and skiing class.
