In a motivating study environment, Sainte Croix des Neiges supports its pupils in their academic development and in the construction of their personal project.

Sainte Croix des Neiges is a private Catholic boarding school, founded in 1948 by the Abbot de Clarens. Located in Abondance, close to Geneva, Annecy and Evian, the school welcomes 250 pupils from primary, secondary and high school, in boarding or day school. The natural surroundings and the mountain activities are both beneficial to the health of young people and ideal for developing team spirit and cohesion.  We place a strong emphasis on our values ​​and pedagogical project, which are the foundation of our commitment to families.
Sainte Croix des Neiges offers an education based on the motto “Confidence and Charity“. Thanks to the small numbers of pupils, the pedagogical team supports children in their schooling whatever their level and abilities. Encouraging discipline and effort, the teaching staff help pupils expand their individual talents and guide them in their personal development.

Sainte Croix des Neiges has built a reputation for sharing, care for others and generosity, values ​​inspired by the Gospel that lead us to welcome students from all backgrounds, cultures and religions. Thus, about twenty different countries are represented in our school. International and cultural diversity is essential to the progress of the adults of tomorrow.

Offering a comfortable and secure environment for our boarding students as well as improving the quality of our accommodation led us to build a new building that opened in January 2018. Located in an outstanding setting, the school offers modern and comfortable facilities that meet the expectations of both French and international families and in line with today’s social and environmental changes.
