About the school

Since 1874, Monte Rosa has been offering a wide range of academic programs in both general subject areas and intensive language studies, taught by enthusiastic teaching experts, in a family-like atmosphere conducive to learning. Adopting its current name in the 1960s, the ‘Institut Monte Rosa’ became co-educational in 1964. To this day, the school has been using its vast experience to demonstrate, each day anew, that successful studies begin with the quality of the surrounding environment.

Comfortable campus of 6’000m2 with sport facilities. Boys and girls benefit from separate housing. Accommodation in double or triple rooms (single rooms are available upon request at special rates). All rooms are furnished to European standards and offer a splendid view of Lake Geneva.
