WELCOME TO SAINTE CROIX DES NEIGES

Sainte Croix des Neiges, founded in 1948, is a State-funded private Catholic schooloffering primary (École), secondary (Collège), upper-secondary (Lycée) and Post Graduate (BTS MCO) education to 250 pupils, both boys and girls. It welcomes boarders (full-time or weekly) and day pupils.

The school is located in Abondance, a village in Haute Savoie (Alps), 1 hour 20 minutes from Geneva and Annecy and 30 minutes from Lake Geneva.

In this exceptional setting and thanks to small class sizes, the school implements a specific teaching initiative whereby the pupils of Sainte Croix des Neiges, both French and international, receive the support of a teaching staff committed to the school’s values and success of each child.

The school motto “Confidence and Charity” resonates with more meaning today than ever. The Sainte Croix initiative is modelled on this motto, inspiring us to encourage pupils to give the very best of themselves.

TESTIMONIALS

    Mes plus belles années d’école. Le passage à l’âge adulte, grâce à Denis Cettour, notre John Keating qui nous offrait notre propre cercle des poètes disparus, grâce à un chef de chalet, Mr Brobst, qui me fît découvrir aussi bien Rimbaud que Springsteen, Antonin Artaud que Tom Waits, grâce à la montagne et sa nature qui lors des bivouacs et des journées de neige nous montraient les voies de la liberté, grâce aux potes qui formaient une famille. C’est là qu’un ami m’a fait découvrir Boris Vian devenu mon auteur préféré, ainsi que l’Existentialisme est un humanisme de Sartre que je présentais avec réussite au bac français comme œuvre hors programme.Deux années inoubliables, indélébiles, qui effacèrent toutes les médiocres autres. L’éducation avec règles et respect de l’enfant que j’étais.
