High School

From October 1st to August 1859 Leo Dehon frequents the municipal college of Hazebrouck (in the north of France, close to the Belgian-French border), which was run by diocesan priests from Flanders.

In a leaflet the director of the college, Rev. Dehaene, presents the program of the school: "We work to educate children by all kinds of exercises suitable to develop the faculties of the soul and the faculties of the body, and especially by religion, heart and torch of the letters, sciences and arts, source and model of all sincere and generous devotions. A paternal monitoring follows the pupil always and everywhere, to educate him to the love of order and duty."
