College Soeurs de La Charite de Saint-Louis de Bourdon or St Louis de Bourdon
The Collège Soeurs de La Charité de Saint-Louis de Bourdon or St Louis de Bourdon was founded by a France based congregation called Sisters of Charity of St. Louis. The person who played the instrumental role in founding the congregation in 1803 was Marie Louise Elizabeth de Lamoignon. The goal of the ever expanding congregation was to impart education to young women globally and the same goal led the congregation to open the college in Haiti.
As far as the curriculum is concerned, the Collège Soeurs de La Charité de Saint-Louis de Bourdon has deep roots of Roman Catholicism. Daily prayers and civic duty sense along with several other religious activities are deeply integrated in the whole curriculum. The confidence of the students are boosted at a very early stage by making them present their project in front of public. There are several electives offered which include baking, cooking, sewing, engineering, creative writing and computer science. The students of the school have time and again participated in volleyball and basketball championships that are organized by Haiti's Department of Education.
