Message from the president - Sainte Croix des Neiges

Message from the president

Founded in 1948 by Abbot Jean de Clarens, Sainte Croix des Neiges is a Government-funded Catholic school that welcomes children aged 3 to 18.

Situated in Abondance, a village in Haute-Savoie, about an hour from Geneva and two hours from Lyon, Sainte Croix des Neiges welcomes children from France and around the world, whatever their origin. The full-time boarding facilities for pupils during the week and weekends, will move to a new building at the end of this year.

The educational mission of our staff is to reject habit, renew how we regard others, invigorate experience and keep the flame burning. This is passed on to our pupils so that they may succeed and build their futures as self-sufficient adults. We thereby respond to the expectations of parents.

This website will help you discover our school and the ideal setting in which it is situated. Our Headmaster – Vincent de Roëck – is available for your enquiries. Please do not hesitate to contact him.

With my very best wishes.


Bernard Brunel – President of the OGEC
