Each year, 400 to 450 students, representing over thirty nationalities, are able to benefit from an exceptional environment and the help of a team of 80 dedicated professionals (teachers, and staff).

Message from the Principal

October 6th, 1921, The first Principal of this campus, L.L Cavines, declared in his inaugural speech : "The purpose of this school is to prepare men and women to serve God and Humanity. We are here to do good around us".

Practically 100 years later, the purpose is unchanged. We hope that every student on our campus may feel that purpose. That each one may build their life founded on the acquisition of knowledge and know-how based on christian values.

Throughout the years, so many human adventures have occured on this campus. It might be time to come and experience your own!  Coming to visit the campus, or coming to study here, you will see for yourself why the Campus has a special space in thousands of people's hearts around the world.
