PRESENTATION OF THE SCHOOL History : we exist more than 100 years it’s one of the schools of the congregation of “ Brothers of Charity “ Belief : we have Catholic “roots” but everyone is welcome in our school. Where : near Antwerp, Merksem, Belgium about 15 minutes from the historic center of Antwerp
The way we work We are a sport-minded school. Most of our students choose for sports and have 5 or 10 hours of sports during the week. As you can see we think highly of the saying “A healthy mind in a healthy body”. However, it’s a general education we give. Our students aren’t all sports champions. We try to let the kids feel at home in our school. Our philosophy is that everyone deserves a chance. Students with problems should find their way to any help they need.
