This programme is designed to give you the skills and the tools to thrive in the demanding 21st century. Workshops in public speaking, the visual arts, musical and dance improvisation, self-defence tactics and risk-assessment methods will all tap into your potential.
You will also spend some time off-campus: participating in mountain excursions and sports that you could only enjoy during a Swiss winter.
Founded in 1880, Institut Le Rosey is an exceptional Swiss school with 420 students from over 60 countries. The main 30-hectare campus is located 30 minutes away from Geneva, in Rolle, with over 15 buildings that offer accommodation, teaching and sports facilities, an arts and learning centre, on-site dining and our own 14th century Château.
During the winter, the boarding students move to a chalet-style campus in the charming ski resort of Gstaad, in the Swiss Alps. The rigorous bilingual programme prepares students to sit the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma or the French Bac while they discover and hone all their talents. A Rosean is an active, curious and ambitious individual with the motivation to follow a holistic education.
In 2018 we are teaming up up with Les Elfes in Verbier to bring you the ultimate Swiss Winter Camp experience. Combine the personal growth, winter adventures and international environment of the Become Yourself camp with the downhill skiing, snowboarding and language options of Les Elfes Winter Camp.
Both camps are possible in weekly configurations (from Saturday to Saturday), so you can decide how long to stay. For example, choose the New Years session in Les Elfes, and then join us at our Lake Geneva Campus for the Become Yourself session starting January 6. Or stay with us two weeks working on your public speaking, self-defence and dance skills and then go up to the mountains for a ski camp. When you register at Les Elfes, make sure you choose the transfer option “Geneva – Les Elfes, return ticket” and transport from/to the Lake Geneva Campus/Les Elfes will be organised accordingly, so you have nothing to worry about.
Verbier’s 4 Vallées Ski Area is the largest lift-linked ski domain in Switzerland with almost 100 lifts accessing over 400km of pistes and a beginner ski area right in the village which means optimum safety and convenience for first-time skiers. The distance between the Lake Geneva Campus and Verbier can be covered by car in less than 2 hours.
