It’s been 30 years since our high school is involved in international cooperation and our students are given the opportunity to travel in many European countries, which is one of the five teaching objectives of the Ministry of Agriculture.
It includes: Comenius school exchanges, individual or group exchanges with Erasmus+, individual internships in Europe, the presence of international volunteers, and the possibility for our staff to work abroad.

End of the Erasmus program after a two-year cooperation between the school professors and Erasmus.
After two years of great work and a fruitful cooperation between the LEAP Sainte-Cécile, our Italians and Swedish partners, the Eramus + Migrations and Nations program, which was conducted in English came to an end effective September 2019. This project was born 5 years ago in reaction to the refugee crisis in the Mediterranean. We were all affected by the terrible images of refugee boats landing on our coasts. The goal of the program was to help our young Europeans students grab the importance of the issue of migrants. The program was designed to focus on understanding better the issues at stake, propose ways to deal with the migrants, especially how to give access to an European schools to the youngest of them. After two years of workshops and numerous activities, slide shows and videos were produced testifying to the vivacity of the great cooperation between the French, Italians and Swedish students. This Erasmus program was the third Erasmus program undertaken by the Sainte-Cécile High School. We are all hoping that the enthusiasm of both the young students and the staff of professors shown during the last 2 years will help build up the momentum for new Erasmus program opportunities in the very near future.

Travelling South of England on the footsteps of King Arthur for the European English section in May 2019.
The Bac Pro SAPAT students (senior high school) from Sainte Cécile High School landed next to Brighton in England. They were welcomed upon their arrival by the hosting families. The students were able to enjoy the seaside of Southern England as well as the city of London. They also had the privilege to visit the famous Unesco World Heritage site of Stonehenge. The rich Celtic heritage was ever present. Many visits were organized on the steps of King Arthur and the round table Knights. It was a great mix of work and play. Students and professors are ready for more discoveries and willing to travel again to England.
