The Collège du Léman is a co-educational boarding and
day school located in Versoix, nine km from the centre of Geneva. Founded
in 1959 and under the same administration today, it is a university-preparatory
school listed on the Professional Register of Swiss Private Schools.
The school is accredited by ECIS and by the New England Association
of Schools and Colleges (NEASC).
The curriculum is designed to make it possible for students to develop
their intellectual, extra-curricular and athletic capabilities within
the international environment of the school. The instructional programme
from kindergarten to the highest classes prepares for four national
examinations: College Board tests, for students intending to enter US
colleges and universities; IGCSE and GCE 'A' level examinations for
those seeking European or other world locations; the French Baccalauréat
and the Swiss Federal Maturité (including the bilingual English-French
Federal Maturité) for French-speaking students seeking entrance
to universities in Europe.
The faculty is made up of teachers with degrees and certification mainly
from the United States, France, Great Britain and Switzerland: over
50% of its members have been with the school for ten years or more.
The 20-acre campus includes a new building complex in which can be found
new science laboratories, the latest IT facilities, music rooms, a fitness
centre, a library and research centre and a theatre. Sports facilities
are comprehensive. Seven boarding houses provide accommodation for 200
boys and girls, grouped by age. During long holidays at Christmas and
at Easter boarders may go home or may join the ski or other trips organized
by the school.
During the winter term, there is opportunity for each grade level to
go skiing for a full week. Students participate each year in the Students
United Nations held in Geneva and the Model United Nations in The Hague,
Holland. Two school plays are produced in each year.
