Visiting Admissions

Visiting Aiglon is vital in the process of choosing the right school. Spending time with us is more than a tour of facilities, it’s discovering an environment that ensures students develop to their best potential.

When visiting Aiglon we want you to experience your new home. You need to see the surroundings, meet the neighbours, and understand the community into which you may move. Each visit at Aiglon is customisable to suit the needs of potential students and their family, but below you can find general information for most visits.

Please submit an enquiry to arrange a visit.

Admissions Office

Aiglon is not your average campus. In fact, many families are surprised to learn just how integrated we are into the local mountain community, without a lot of the fences and gates that are traditional of other schools. Please arrive directly to the Admissions Office, not the school’s main reception.

You will be greeted by a member of our admissions team, who will sit down with you to talk through the specifics of your visit. They will discuss any questions you may have, and make any necessary introductions. Our admissions team are keen to connect you with the encounters which give you a visit that accurately reflects life at Aiglon.

Tour

A campus tour usually takes about an hour, during which you will experience the inspiring mountaintop campus in much the same way as our students and staff do on a daily basis.

We try to connect you with a student ambassador of the same age as your child. This way, we can ensure that you receive the most relatable representative who can offer personal insight to any queries you or your child may have during your tour.

Assessments

Learn more about assesments as part of the Admission Process.

If you have already submitted an application, we will arrange this interview with our Director of Admisisons and member of our academic team. We will also arrange the necessary entrance examinations based on your child's situation.

Activities

The key to any visit is providing you with the best experience of Aiglon’s curriculum and lifestyle. We want you to take away part of the spirit of the mountain that we strive to instil in our students. To this end, we are always happy to arrange the chance to shadow a student, share a meal at the School Restaurant or participate in sports training.

Accessing the Admissions Office

All visitors should arrive directly to the Admissions Office, which is not the main reception.

Address: Les Collonges 4, 1885 Chesières

Pass the school’s main drive, turn left at the fork and proceed along the main road up the hill.

After 300m, take the first left turn and continue onto campus. Visitors may park in the area marked 24 on our map in the designated spaces beyond the boarding house on your left.

From there, proceed to the chalet marked 22 on the campus map - “Les Collonges” - situated to the right of our white observatory dome. The Admissions office is located at the top floor.

Accessing Aiglon's Campus

Aiglon is 120km from Geneva and 250km from Zurich. Geneva (GVA) airport is closest, but both cities are served by frequent international flights.

The campus is easy to access via car or public transport. For driving directions, please enter the address of Aiglon's Admissions Office: Les Collonges 4, 1885 Chesières.

By train from Geneva to our nearest station in Aigle takes approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes. The Aigle train will be listed as going to "Sion and Brig". Do not worry that Aigle is not listed on the information boards. Visit the link on the left for timetables and connections.

From Aigle station, you may get a taxi to Aiglon, a journey of about 25 minutes, or a TPC bus, just outside the station. The stop for Aiglon is called Chesières-Aiglon College and is next to the school. The bus journey takes about 30 minutes.

Swiss railways use an integrated ticketing system and it is possible to buy a ticket from Geneva Airport to Chesières-Villars, which is valid for both bus and train.

Please note the additional directions above for accessing the Admissions Office.
