Summer camp at Le Rosey boarding school in Gstaad

The Le Rosey boarding school was founded in 1880 and is considered to be the most renowned institute in Switzerland. Since 1916 Le Rosey has been leaving its main campus by Lake Geneva and spending ten weeks in Gstaad during the winter season. Winter sports are also on the curriculum alongside regular lessons. During a summer camp, students aged between 8 and 18 can attend a course that prepares them for the International Baccalaureate examinations.

John F. Kennedy International School

“Small School. Big Heart” – that’s the slogan of the John F. Kennedy International School. It exists since 1950 and opened its doors in Saanen in 1971. The curriculum at this Cambridge University Board IGCSE school is based on a sound philosophy of international education that takes the world’s rapid changes into account. At the same time, the JFK International School is as well-known for this challenging maxim as it is for its informal atmosphere. Responsibility, friendliness, openness, integrity and respect are the five key values that students and staff are committed to.
