At La Salette there are several aspects which lay a major role in the student's formation. Among the more well known elements, boarding life is a big cornerstone of the formation offered by La Salette. If boarding life is nothing more than living in a community, what is so beneficial about it? This life forces a student to be in situations that will benefit him in the future, because it gives him better social skills. It also helps to build comradery in good and in bad times.
"Fraternitatem Diligite"-Peter1 2:17. "Love the brotherhood". To really benefit from the boarding life one has to first love it. The benefits will come as an alumnus recalls from his past experiences. 'It (boarding life) made me less selfish and helped me to recognize the hierarchy and how to fit into it".-Mr. James Golightly
