Sainte Croix des Neiges, founded in 1948, is a State-funded private Catholic school offering primary (École), secondary (Collège) and upper-secondary (Lycée) 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.
