At anyone's level!

Sainte Croix des Neiges's Moutain Project aims at exploiting our exceptionnal natural environment to train our pupils with a sports, playful, public-spirited and even professional target.

The pupil's individual self-accomplishment is here targeted : autonomy, sense of responsibilities, creative and sports spirit, knowledge of safety rules, of our moutain environment, are all necessary ingredients to reach maturity.

From primary school (10 years old) to the final year of secondary school, any pupil at Sainte Croix des Neiges will gain a rather complete knowledge and experience of the moutain environment and activities, enough to apply for professional competencies and skills in relation with the moutain.

This learning articulates around several fields :

The mountain activities, proposed within Sainte Croix des Neiges's school schedule.
