All children who are 4 years of age by 1 September of the current year are required to attend school. School is compulsory for a period of 12 consecutive years, until the child turns 16. However, children having reached the age of 15 may choose to begin an apprenticeship, which exempts them from further classroom education.

Public schools are free of charge. For children who attend school in Luxembourg City but live outside the city, the enrolment fees are paid by the child's municipality of residence.
