The next Summer Courses at l'Institut La Gruyère will be held from July 8th – 27th, 2018. Kids and teenagers from age 10 to 18 may sign up for the two- or three-weeks Summer Courses, which allows them to be perfectly prepared for the new school year.
Morning classes are dedicated to learning a language (French, English, German, Italian, Spanish or Russian). After a brief assessment at the beginning of their stay, students are divided into groups of different levels (Basic, Medium, Advanced, Superior).
These activities are available every afternoon: football, tennis, swimming, sail, basketball, water-ski, climbing, guided hiking, mountain biking .
During Summer Courses they offer: visits to exhibitions and museums, city trips to Lausanne, Geneva, Fribourg or Berne, as well as excursions to the surrounding area as to the castle of Gruyères, the Gruyere cheese factory or the Cailler chocolate factory in Broc. During the Summer Courses in Gruyères, the evening program may take place at the lake or in the woods and includes games, bonfire, barbecue events, dancing parties, etc.
On weekends a special program (with i.e. water games or city tours) is set up. Depending on the weather, we are pleased to bring our international students to the beautiful Alps region. A trip to Zermatt regularly takes place. We also organize hiking tours, picnics and overnights in a mountain chalet. Our students always follow an evening program that fits their age and interests.
