Weekly Schedule

Time at the Ecole runs rhythmically, and is determined by our weekly schedule. This gives the students clarity and a sense of security.

Regular lessons run from Monday morning to Friday noon, divided into the morning and the afternoon programs. How we learn

During the evenings students can study and do homework in the library or the Learning Center. They can also choose to meet with friends, listen to music, or simply "chill".

Special times

Wednesday

On Wednesday afternoon, everyone gathers for an hour at the weekly School Assembly. Here, under the leadership of a student, issues that involve the entire school are introduced, discussed, and clarified.

Every Wednesday evening the students cook and/or participate together in an activity in their Ecole Families.

The Weekend

Saturday

Saturday morning begins with the Singing Assembly, which is followed by the "Big Putz"--an in-depth cleaning of the school. Following this two lessons take place, on an alternating basis. Students have the afternoon free. In the early evening is "Room Cleaning" time. After dinner is either a Dance or a Game evening.

Sunday

On Sunday morning we meet first for a late brunch, after which the students have a free day until dinner. There are sports and other activities, the library is open, and in the afternoon the Film Group shows a movie. Sunday closes with the Sunday Evening Program ("Andacht"), a presentation by a teacher, student, or group on a theme of philosophical or current interest. Afterwards the families meet in their houses to discuss any issues that might have arisen in daily family life and to settle on an idea for the next Family Evening activity.
