Thousands of Lemania’s graduates have been accepted in major institutions and have achieved their career goals. Today, Lemania College Lausanne is managed by the third generation of the family founders. Lemania College Sion-Switzerland is a section of Ecole Montani (member of Lemania Group of Schools), which was founded in 1965 by Mr Gabriel Montani. Under his leadership, Ecole Montani quickly became an important part of the private education system in the Canton of Valais. For almost 50 years, Montani School has maintained the vision of its founders: an holistic education approach, the strong desire for continuous improvement, and awareness of environmental responsibility. Lemania College Sion-Switzerland combines the expertise from two institutions totalling 150 years of pedagogical experience: Lemania College Lausanne and Ecole Montani.

For many students, living with roommates gives them their first opportunity to share their space with other students, which makes this experience all the more rewarding. Common areas, study areas and individual areas enable students to find the right place for all their needs. Common areas: The magnificent outside garden with leisure areas is perfect for activities or just hanging out. Inside the house, the students have common rooms with WiFi connections where they can get together during their free time to read, watch television, play board games or talk about their day. A ping-pong table, a football table and a piano are pleasant additions to the leisure areas. Study areas: a common study room supervised by a teacher provides the right atmosphere for doing homework and going over lessons. The small desks are designed for individual study or for working in small groups. Individual areas: on the floors dedicated to private time, the students’ rooms are very comfortable. They are generally shared by 2 or 3 students of different nationalities. Some single rooms are also available. All rooms have private bathrooms.
