The CDE Boarding Program: A Closer Look


Beginning at the age of seven, children in the Le Château des Enfants (CDE) program have the opportunity to be boarding students at the TASIS Summer Programs. Staffed by caring and dedicated educators, the CDE boarding program is a vibrant and intimate community that reflects the ethos of the TASIS schools by encouraging children to respect and learn from one another. The young boarders are placed with students from cultures and countries different than their own and enjoy a highly structured routine that helps them feel safe and encourages them to find their independence.

In this inspiring new video created by Graham Pearsall and Alex Secilmis '19, CDE boarding students discuss what they love most about the program.
