2019 FRASSATI INTERNATIONAL
COLLÈGE ET LYÇÉE FRASSATI
FRASSATI INTERNATIONAL offers the perfect opportunity for international students to learn French in a local school. We are a boys’ Catholic boarding school located in the Vosges.
The facilities of Frassati International, where international students are hosted and follow their programme, are located in L'Étanche, in a former cistercian abbey (18th century) in a restful, natural and green setting. This historical building is few kilometers away from our local school facilities.
This tipical french village is just few kilometers away from the city of Vittel. Vittel is internationally-known for its mineral water. It is a dynamic small town that offers various cultural and sports activities.
Established in 2007, Frassati Middle and High schools welcome each year over 150 students coming from all over France. Our students achieve excellent academic results in national examinations. Indeed, over the past 5 years, 99% of our French students successfully passed their A-level.
Our school aimes at developing our students' interest in intelluctual work. We want them to build a positive critical thinking, open to the world and to others, and the ability to interact with others in a friendly environment.
Our school is open to everyone, both to intelectually gifted students and to those who have less ease. To reach this goal, teaching and personal work are individualised and tailored to each student. Everyone is simply encouraged to give his best.
Smartphones and the use of the Internet are limited within the school during the weekdays to keep detrimental distractions out. This restriction stimulates a real cultural and language immersion.
Students are under the care of a French family.
PIER GIORGIO FRASSATI
"Sadness must be banned
from Catholic hearts"
The figure of Blessed Giorgio Frassati is closely related to the identity and the education project of our school.
Pier Giorgio Frassati was an italian student and mountaineer. Pope John Paul II beatified him for his exemplary human and spiritual values.
Good mood, benevolence, a sense of endeavour, sports are all essential elements that represent our identity and guide our education project.
As a Catholic school, Frassati also offers various spiritual activities. These activities are non-mandatory for our international students but are renewed opportunities to improve his French skills and to experience cultural interractions.
These include the following activities:
