Buildings and infrastructure
Within a rural setting, Sainte Croix des Neiges welcomes pupils from the 6th grade to final year.
Girls are housed in a brand new modern building. Bedrooms for three people include work spaces and private bathroom and WC.
For the well-being of body and soul, pupils can enjoy rest, recreation and leisure periods within the boarding school itself.
The foyer, the very heart of the building, is the place for meeting and sharing.
Girls can thus relax, enjoy a match of table football, billiards or table tennis or play the piano or drums. They can also chat with their families via Skype (4 PCs are available), watch the TV or listen to music.
There is also a cinema on the premises.
Boarding school life
Boarding school is a place for living and personal development where girls can grow up in an environment of trust and learn to develop their independence and sense of responsibility via a respect for rules and other people.
Supervision is provided by a teaching team composed of a boarding school supervisor and two educators, responsive to the dialogue and requests of the residents.
Boarding school offers a productive working environment, intending to continue schooling through:
- An exchange with the high school/college people in charge and teachers
- Supervised studies after the evening meal for college pupils.
On Wednesday afternoons and weekends, various activities are proposed to residents; these can be educational, sporting or cultural: cinema, swimming, high rope course climbing (accrobranche), Laser Game, pastry-making, group sports, hiking, visits…
Due to where we are situated, skiing is favoured in winter. It is practiced in the Abondance ski stations or the French-Swiss domain of Portes du Soleil.
The boarding school timetable is designed to meet the pupils’ physiological needs and facilitate their studies during the school day..
