Legal status


La Grande Ourse
is a non-profit associative organization. It is settled in a "canton" (state) that doesn't acknowledge nor subsidize non-state schooling. Therefore, it is completely autonomous.

It is considered by the authorities of the canton as a private school, but it claims a status of "public free school".

It is affiliated to:
Swiss Federation of Private Schools  (SFPS),
Association Neuchâteloise des Ecoles Privées  (ANEP) website only in French,
and to the Swiss Association of Free Schools  (VFSS/ASEN) website only in German
                Vereinigung Freier Schulen der Schweiz/Association Suisse des Ecoles Nouvelles.
