The Lycée Louis-le-Grand (French pronunciation: [lise lwi lə ɡʁɑ̃]) is a public secondary school located in Paris, widely regarded as one of the most prestigious in France. Founded in 1550 as the Collège de Clermont, it was renamed in King Louis XIV of France's honor after he extended his direct patronage to it in 1682. It offers both a sixth-form college curriculum (as a lycée with 800 pupils), and a post-secondary-level curriculum (classes préparatoires with 900 students), preparing students for entrance to the elite Grandes Écoles (such as the École Normale Supérieure, the École Polytechnique, Centrale Paris, HEC Paris or ESSEC Business School). Students at the Lycée Louis-le-Grand are called magnoludoviciens.
