We offer a variety of language classes for all levels. If you would rather focus on another subject we also offer a variety of other morning courses, including: Sports Discovery, Swiss Explorer, Science & Engineering Investigator, or Robotics & Coding. There is something for everyone.

New in 2024 we are also pleased to offer Art Explorer and our unique partnership as a Manchester City Football School, available as a morning course.

Summer School Mountain Hiking
Expedition Time

Central to Aiglon's 70+ year existence has been the exploration of the outdoors. We live in a beautiful alpine environment, and we make the most of it! Step off of campus to easily access the mountain train, gondola, or any number of other activities that are awaiting in our mountain environment. Every student has the opportunity to go on expedition and form the memories that are central to our ethos.


Students are allocated their boarding house based on gender and age and to include a diverse range of nationalities. Each boarding house has a live-in team (house parent and two tutors) who manage the well-being of every student and are the first point of contact for parents. Rooms are spacious and are typically shared with two or three other students of a similar age. 

A Day at Summer School

Students enjoy a balanced day with lots of time for learning, fun and community. On some days there will also be expeditions or local excursions.
