Welcome on Sainte Croix des Neiges school complex website!

Located in the heart of the French Alps, in the Valley of Abondance, only a few miles away from Switzerland and Lake Geneva, our school complex gathers a Primary School, an Elementary School and two Secondary Schools (« Collège » and « Lycée ») in a beautiful moutain environment.

We welcome pupils come from all horizons, close or distant, in day school, half- board but also in permanent or week boarding school.
As a Catholic private institution under contract with the State, we are connected with the diocesan Department of Education in Annecy as well as the Ministry of Education.. But beyond the duties of the national education programs, our project is based on a the individual's global training : knowledges, know-how, know « how to be », and especially know « how to become » will allow our pupils to play their role as responsible actors in the world of tomorrow.

This global proposal lies in very concrete means:
• reasonable class sizes, in order to optimise the studying conditions,
• supervised study periods every evening, run by teachers who advise and help their pupils,
• sports activities in mountains supervised by professionals to discover and adapt to other environments and learn how to become a responsible person by the collective action.
Our teams show a rare and indefectible investment for the success of our young people.

Hence should a « Sainte Croix des Neiges » Spirit develop, revealed by the success of 100 % of our candidates for the French Baccalaureat,(A-Levels) and by the attachment that our alumni show to their school, and above all by their smiles that you will find throughout this website.

I wish you a good visit, and above all do not hesitate to contact us for more information.
