BOARDING : the girls (Collège and Lycée)

In a natural and safe environment, the chalet Edelweiss opens its doors to young girls, from the first classes (6ème) to the ultimate class (Terminale), shared out in 4- and 6-bedded rooms for the girls of the Collège and 2- to 4-bedded rooms for the girls of the Lycée. Boarding helps self-accomplishment, in a quiet and confident atmosphere, develop the sense of autonomy and responsibility through the respect of common rules, and therefore, respect of the others. The education staff is composed of a supervisor and two educators, who take a great care in supporting, listening and helping each girl when needed.

Moreover, the Edelweiss is a cosy and quiet place, the proper continuity of dayschool, thanks to:

- a permanent exchange between the boarding staff and the teacher/education community

- the supervised after-diner studies for the girls of the Lycée.
To combine relaxation of the soul and the body, girls can enjoy the facilities offered in the very premises of the Edelweiss:

- a relaxing room with a television, a console, a billiards, society games, a library, fitness machines…

- a computer room, equiped with Wifi and Skype as well as phone lines, to allow the youngs to stay in touch with their relatives.

- various sports, educatives or cultural activities are proposed to boarders on Wednesday afternoons and on the week-ends, such as cinema, swimming-pool, accrobranche (tree climbing), Laser Game, pastry cooking, team sports, trekkings…). Of course, the geographic location makes skiing the main activity of the winter (Abondance ski resort or the French-Swiss ski resort of the Portes du Soleil).
