Top prestigious Swiss boarding school. Boarding schools in Switzerland belong to top residential schools in the world! This is one of these schools!
Le Rosey’s 380 students are all boarders and share life on two campuses: the first an attractive manorial estate in Rolle beside Lake Geneva, and the second, during the winter months, in the picturesque alpine ski resort of Gstaad.
All students must sit either the International Baccalaureate (IB) or French baccalauréat after following an academic programme with the chance to take each subject in either English or French, as well as studying one, two or even three further foreign languages.
They live in an international community to which each Rosean contributes through his or her own language, culture and religion; making the campus a true “global village” to share with friends.
