Aiglon Magazine

This publication is not a typical school magazine. It is designed to evoke the spirit of studying and living on the mountain. With increased use of social media and especially the launch of the Aiglon Life website, alumni are connecting in real time to share memories and stories. Aiglon Magazine brings the Aiglon experience to life in print, and the aim of this publication is not just to tell you what is happening at the school today, but also to embody our values.
