In 2016, Round Square’s 50th Anniversary year, the two host schools, Aiglon College and Stiftung Louisenlund, will run almost simultaneous programmes, staggered by one day. Planning is well underway with the theme ‘‘The journey that makes us…’’ with a range of challenging activities and adventures. The Aiglon community looks forward to welcoming you to its beautiful location set in the Swiss Alps, 9th - 14th October 2016
Learn more about how to start the registration process for your school or as an individual here and outlining a draft programme.

Aiglon is proud to be a founder member of Round Square, a global network of schools committed to prioritising not only their students' academic excellence, but also their personal development. All schools share "IDEALS" of Internationalism, Democracy, the Environment, Adventure, Leadership and Service.
Round Square schools collaborate on international service projects, and also operate exchanges for students and teachers. Recently, Aiglon has hosted a teachers’ conference for the sharing of best practice, while Aiglon students travel to the annual Round Square student conference (held recently at St Andrew’s School in Boca Raton, Florida), to network and hear the different experiences of their peers. Junior students also participate in international meetings, usually held closer to home, such as the Regional Conference, recently held in Zurich.
International service projects are a significant part of the Round Square ethos, and as such are a good fit for Aiglon’s CAS commitment. Students take the lead in organising these trips and in recent years have included a visit to an orphanage in Bulgaria where students decorated a wall and spent time with the children living there. Round Square events take their place in Aiglon’s busy charity calendar, too, such as a recent Halloween dance.
Each of the six Senior School Houses have raised enough money to sponsor a year’s education for a student attending the Boys’ or Girls' Starehe Schools for talented street children in Nairobi, Kenya, which are also members of Round Square.
Aiglon was a founder-member of Round Square, in 1967, and the association (now numbering more than 100 schools globally) continues to play a vital role in showing students that the values we prize here are shared internationally.
