Once admitted, the young students are installed as borders for 11 months, of which 9 months consists of part-time studies divided between personal improvement and workshop training. The Foundation contributes towards their pension and training and they are received as members of a family. Daily life proceeds in an atmosphere entirely orientated towards work and study.

To receive the students, the Foundation has an important accommodation capacity centred around the "hameau" (the courtyard) of the Estate, which is where the classrooms are to be found. The workshops, on the other hand, are in the north part of the Estate but are within easy walking distance.

The courtyard also has rooms available for conferences, which are intended primarily for the students and cover different themes to compliment the course, to provide concerts and to reinforce their cultural expansion.

The Foundation holds a library at the disposition of the students, which has an important collection of early technical books collected by Yvonne de Coubertin.
