Leysin American School is one of top Switzerland boarding schools for girls and boys. An IB boarding school.
International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB)
IB students at Leysin American School have their own dedicated campus at the Belle Époque, formerly the historic Grand Hotel Leysin. This campus has its own train station, but more importantly, it houses students who are working hard to gain a place at university by studying for this prestigious and globally recognized two-year diploma. Having a separate campus to study for the IB gives them better conditions to work as individuals, teams or with the experienced and motivated faculty. This campus receives numerous visits each year from admissions personnel who recognize that these students would be an asset to any university.
U.S. Diploma Program (Grades 8-12)
All students who graduate from Leysin American School are awarded the LAS U.S. High School Diploma, including students who take the International Baccalaureate. This prestigious high school diploma is accredited by the Commission on Secondary Schools of the Middle States Association and the Council for International Schools.
LAS offers an academically balanced curriculum from Grades 8 through 12 leading to this award, with an ESL option for those who need support in English. Over the course of the program, students will concentrate on the key academic areas required for university entrance—English, mathematics and science—as well as other important subjects that help to develop greater personal and social awareness—modern languages, social sciences, humanities and arts.
