Reportage video RTBF du 8 septembre 2018 : Ils suivent les cours... en latin ! - L'envers du décor de 7 à la Une
A unique programme

Founded in 1995, Schola Nova is a private, non-subsidized school, situated in the heart of Walloon Brabant (Brabant Wallon) in Belgium.
The school provides primary and secondary education for children aged 7 to 18.
The programme that has made the school successful and lent it its reputation for the last fifteen years is that of Greco-Latin classical humanities. This privileged means of access to Western culture has stood the test of time over centuries. Why deprive new generations of this humanist education that brings hope to the world?

The school’s aim is to produce competent young people, capable of expressing themselves in several languages and of reasoning both with the heart and with the mind, having a window on the world and on other cultures thanks to their profound knowledge of their roots and of the Ancients.

Schola Nova’s success is based on a passionate and highly qualified teaching staff and on parents who are actively engaged in the life of the school.

Modern languages

Language immersion is practiced from the outset.
At secondary level, all pupils take courses in Dutch and English taught by native speakers. Moreover, geography and history of art are taught entirely in Dutch.
Schola Nova also offers, outside of school hours, other language courses open to all.

Artistic activities

The school organizes numerous artistic activities outside of school hours. Music, drama, plastic arts courses, etc. All group activities are covered by the school fees. Some courses are also open to people from outside the school.


Each year, Schola Nova organizes a series of classical music concerts in the school hall.
These concerts, attended by a growing number of music-lovers, help pupils learn to appreciate the live music experience. On such occasions, the pupils meet the artists and discover new music and new instruments.
