Collège du Léman
Spanning 50 green acres, our spacious campus includes more than 20 individual buildings. We are a large school with a small school atmosphere, providing a uniquely welcoming, village feel. Situated at the edge of Lake Geneva, close to the Swiss Alps and less than 20 minutes from the airport, our students experience a safe, healthy, and active outdoor lifestyle.
We bring together our day and boarding students on one campus and encourage them to create, strong, life-long connections. In our parent surveys, 95% of parents state their child is happy in school.
We tailor our exceptional range of learning choices to bring out the best in our students. Our broad range of language programmes (English, French, and Bilingual), the breadth of our 5 diplomas and more than 100 extracurricular activities allow our students to find the path that is right for them. Our talented teachers get to know the precise needs and strengths of each student and tailor their teaching approach, developing personalised learning plans for every child. We go beyond traditional education with our enriched curriculum and our collaborations with MIT, The Julliard School, and UNICEF.
We inspire our diverse, multicultural student body to become compassionate global citizens, harness differences, and change our world for the better. Our ‘RISE’ values of Respect, Internationalism, Team Spirit, and Excellence are at the heart of everything we do, uniting our community of 120 student and 35 teacher nationalities.
Collège du Léman is part of a virtual Global Campus of Nord Anglia schools, and in our surveys, 85% of parents say their child is developing global awareness in school. There is a network of more than 23,000 Collège du Léman alumni around the world, many of whom occupy leadership positions in top multi-national organisations.
As a Swiss international school, we set the highest standards of excellence in everything we do. Collège du Léman was founded by a leading Swiss educator, to offer a learning experience that has the precision and excellence Switzerland is famous for. The outstanding results our students achieve across our programmes are a testimony to this – with a 99% graduating diploma pass rate over the last three years and a 100% pass rate in 2022.
Our neutral Swiss culture provides an inclusive sense of belonging for all nationalities, cultures, and backgrounds. We are proud to be recognized around the world as a prestigious school, but at the same time, we nurture a sense of humility and social responsibility in our students. In a structured, warm, diverse, and down-to-earth environment our students benefit from a strong holistic education and can grow into confident and thoughtful young adults – well prepared for the next step in life.
