Collège Notre-Dame au Coeur d'Or

Collège Notre-Dame au Coeur d’Or

Notre-Dame au Coeur d’Or is an independent catholic boarding school for boys tucked away in the midst of the Belgian Ardennes. It is however easily accessible by car or by train (on the direct line from Brussels).

We believe in providing a rounded education from Year 6 onwards, fostering the intellectual development of each child, their sporting achievements and artistic talents while at the same time nurturing their spiritual life.

Set up as a non-profit organization (ASBL), Notre-Dame au Coeur d’Or has benefitted from the financial support of the “Fonds Alcuin” which enabled us to recruit a sports instructor in 2019, as well as to carry out renovations in the boarding house in 2020.
