Were the Louis-le-Grand and Henri IV high schools revolutionary? Not only do they bear the names of kings, today they educate excellent students, chosen after a rigorous selection process. Under the Ancien Régime, these establishments were colleges, run by monks, open to the sons of nobility and the bourgeoisie. If future revolutionaries like Maximilien Robespierre or Camille Desmoulins were accepted, it was because they received scholarships. The education that they received was very classical, and even conservative: consequently, their future dedication to the Revolution did not start here.
