Paderno del Grappa Campus

The campus of the Filippin Institute, of the DeLasalle Christian Brothers, is located in the small Italian town of Paderno del Grappa. The campus offers students the cultural experience of living in a small Italian community, while providing access to the celebrated art  and historical treasures of the Veneto region. The fullservice facility includes classrooms, a cafeteria, residence halls, computer and language labs, and modern athletic facilities including an indoor swimming pool, a cardio and weight room, and a gymnasium.

Every semester students attend three special dinner outings with professors and staff at a formal Italian restaurant. Past student highlights have included olive picking on the Grappa Mountains, touring local wineries, and learning to toss a pizza at a local pizzeria. These – and other local events – allow students to experience traditions that make the Veneto Region unique.

Italian junior and senior high-school students also attend classes on campus. Some of these students also reside on campus. American and Italian students live in different buildings and attend different classes, but cultural interaction is encouraged through social activities such as Halloween parties, American Thanksgiving dinners and language practice groups.

This program offers rigorous, high-quality courses taught in English.
The Filippin Institute campus offers dormitory style housing with single and double rooms available.
The cost of the program is approximately the same as tuition, room and board for a regular semester on the Winona campus.
