School Summary
National, US, UK, curricula.

The Collège Alpin Beau Soleil is a privately owned international boarding school with approximately 180 boys and girls of some 30 different nationalities. Founded in 1910, Beau Soleil has been under the guidance of the De Meyer family since 1959.

The school is situated at an altitude of 1,300m in an Alpine village of some 2,000 inhabitants, facing south across the Rhône Valley. Geneva is one hour away by road or rail.

The school is divided into two sections.

The French Lycée offers classes from the Sixième through to the Terminale, following the official programme of the French Baccalaureat.

The Anglo-American Section provides academic programmes for grades six to 12 leading to the High School Diploma. An increasing number of students also follow curricula leading to the College Board tests and AICE examinations, involving 'A' and 'AS' levels.

Classes are small (maximum 16 students, average 10). Study time is closely supervised and small tutor groups are available for students with academic difficulties. Each student is discussed individually at half-termly staff meetings and a detailed academic report is sent to the parents after each meeting.

The students are housed in the main school building and in four other boarding houses close by. Sporting, leisure and cultural activities are organised at the weekends. The sports infrastructure of the school and the local area is extensive and sporting activities play an important part in the school curriculum. Winter sports are a key element in the second trimester. The school also has its own 'Nature and Expedition Centre', located in a nearby mountain village. All students spend some weeks of the school year there. Students are expected to develop independence and self-sufficiency in their studies and daily lives, as well as leadership qualities.
