La Baita (Junior Boys)
With a view over campus, La Baita combines learning and life. Houseparents live on the top floor while classrooms and rooms below reflect life as one extended family for Aiglon's youngest.
Welcome to La Baita,
We seek to provide a homely environment where individual boarders are able to grow into responsible and confident young men. La Baita is the hub of the Junior School, with classrooms and the dining room on its lower floors, creating a unified environment for work and play.
La Baita’s boys are kept busy not only with their studies, but also with house camping, ski and cultural trips – recent destinations include Alsace, Neuchâtel and Gruyère, with visits not only to museums and castles, but also to the chocolate factory in Broc.
We enjoy a lively social life, with regular Wednesday evening events. These range from reading competitions, and quiz and charity bingo nights, to a talent show, sports evening and technology challenge. La Baita boys are always busy, and always part of our family.
We hope you can visit and also experience life in La Baita.
