From the Head Master

Welcome to one of the world's most distinctive boarding schools.

With the responsibilities of the future in their hands, our students need to develop the courage to face challenges, the confidence to lead, and the humility to serve.

Richard McDonald,

Head Master

Our natural setting of outstanding beauty, our diverse and dynamic student body, our highly experienced and motivated staff team, our rigorous and broad curriculum, and our global reputation for setting challenge at the core of all learning – these lie at the heart of Aiglon College. Through the balanced development of mind, body and spirit, we foster an appetite for a responsible life, well-led, in the quest for self-fulfilment and the service of others.

At Aiglon, we believe in inquiry-based learning. Students are challenged to go beyond the accumulation of factual knowledge and to address the greater questions that frame our world. We celebrate creativity and originality as vital qualities that equip individuals to reach new horizons of knowledge, appreciation and understanding.

Aiglon's remarkable national and cultural diversity is an inspiring example of how, on a small scale, we are able to build a harmonious and fulfilled community.

Our alpine location provides exceptional opportunities for personal development outside the classroom. Our unique expedition programme develops self-reliance, team and leadership skills, determination, and a love of the natural environment.

Students who leave Aiglon are typically confident, gregarious, dynamic, entrepreneurial, and empathetic. They try new things; they ask probing questions; they dare. If you have an appetite for challenge and an ambition to make a positive impact on our world, Aiglon could well be the school for you.
