Summer school

Aiglon Summer School is a vacation experience like no other.

Our Summer School students leave with greater confidence and knowledge of themselves, and understanding of others. That is because in addition to a packed timetable of lessons, they get to participate in one of the things that makes an Aiglon education unique – Expedition.

Each Summer School includes a mini-expedition, appropriate to the age of participants. At Aiglon, young people have the chance to hike a small peak, learn new skills such as orienteering and campcraft, enjoy teamwork and relax around the campfire. That’s all rounded off with a night under the stars.

Whether you are considering sending your child to Aiglon full-time or simply want them to enjoy a few weeks of exciting and rewarding activities during the summer, our Summer Schools give children age between 8 to 16 the opportunity to experience all that Aiglon has to offer.

A typical day

Summer School students stay in Aiglon’s distinctive boarding houses. Your child will wake up in a comfortable dorm room with up to 3 others, before enjoying breakfast prepared by Aiglon’s skilled chef and his team.

Morning classes are spent honing language skills in either English or French, utilising Aiglon’s state-of-the-art language lab, role-play, and of course the school’s own wonderful setting in the French-speaking Swiss Alps.

After lunch, students have the opportunity to take part in exhilarating activities at Aiglon’s brand new sports centre, and on the river, lakes, mountains and pasture all around us. Students can choose to receive expert tuition in activities such as windsurfing, horse riding, and rock climbing, as well as the full range of traditional sports. And there are creative options, too: dance, drama, music and art.

After supper, there is time to relax with new friends from around the world, and perhaps try out their fast-growing language skills. Our evenings are full of fun such as BBQs and Swiss fondues, a musical extravaganza, and favourites that include 10-pin bowling and a disco.

Next steps

A number of Summer School students go on to enroll as students at Aiglon, while others come back every year, making new friends and developing new skills. For all, the Aiglon Summer School is a one-off experience that lives on in fond memory.

If you think your child would relish the opportunities to grow, learn and explore at Aiglon this summer, why not find out more?
