This is not a typical school magazine. Designed to evoke the spirit of studying and living on the mountain, Aiglon Magazine brings the Aiglon experience to life in print.
Our goal is not just to tell you what is happening at the school today but to embody who we are. We invite you to read one of our recent issues, or take a look back through time at the Aiglon stories we tell through this thoroughly unique and very Aiglon publication.
Aiglon Magazine has been awarded multiple awards as part of the CASE "Circle of Excellence" awards programme. As the judges describe, "Every article contains interesting material relevant to their school and their surroundings. This is a coffee table piece."
If you don't receive a copy, and would like to, please let us know using the button on the side of this page.
