The Saint-Guibert College was founded by the congregation of the Brethren of the Chtistian Schools, following the principles of its founder Jean Baptiste de La Salle. This pedagogy is centered on the youngsters, adapted to their time and devoted to their social insertion, with special care for the most needy.

Our College, located at Gembloux in central Belgium, comprises 4 separate schools and 3100 students:

- The secondary school, general, technical and professional, 12 – 18, Orneau square

Openness, listening, availability, faith, the place of the pupil are the values of our pedagogic project, summarized by Albert Jacquard’s saying: “ I am the relations I weave “

We want a school that favors:
A. The relation to oneself,
B. The relation to knowledge,
C. The relation to others.
