Top Lausanne Day And Boarding School - Collège Champittet
Collège Champittet is located just 2 minutes away on foot from Lake Geneva, offering its students the perfect environment to undergo primary and secondary education in Switzerland.
The campus in Pully has an appealing mix of local and international students and boasts first-class academic and sport facilities including tennis courts, a running track, football pitches, and a gym.
Students can follow 3 different – and internationally accepted – Diploma programmes. These are Swiss Maturité, the French Baccalaureate or the International Baccalaureate. Classes are offered in French and English with the option to learn Advanced German as a foreign language as well; meaning that most of the students are trilingual by the time they graduate.
The school also offers a unique opportunity for musically gifted students thanks to the Juilliard programme, established in collaboration with the prestigious Juilliard School in New York.
The school’s supportive staff and teachers encourage students to pursue academic excellence and stay ambitious on a daily basis. Cultural and historical trips are often organised to help them broaden their horizons and develop an inquisitive mind; students have travelled as far as Japan and have been to Madagascar on a humanitarian trip in recent years. Career guidance is also available to ensure they continue to dream big when it comes to higher education.
Boarding at Collège Champittet is available for 80 students from the age of 11 until they are 18. The accommodation is offered in a 4 floor family-size house with separated boys and girls lodgings and resident staff. Rooms are shared between students from different nationalities to further foster the convivial spirit of the school. As a result, Collège Champittet students grow up to be responsible, tolerant and well-rounded individuals.
