Welcome from the Director General

Welcome to Collège du Léman.

Our children are entering a different world. It is an exciting world, with more advanced technology, in which we can communicate more easily with people all over the planet.

This requires a different approach to education.

  • Thomas main web page

At Collège du Léman, we nurture students to become confident, compassionate, and enthusiastic about opportunities everywhere in the world.

We shape our students to be globally dedicated citizens, eager to make a deep and long-lasting contribution to society. Our community is home to many different cultures and nationalities, and our curriculum and teaching teaches students to become "problem solvers", who pause for thought, appreciate different perspectives and seek common ground with everyone they meet.

Above all, we understand that every child has potential, and that it is the school's aim to inspire students to discover and pursue it. Our teaching, facilities and location all allow us to offer unmatched choice. Your child will be able to explore a large range of activities and subjects, and our personalised approach will help them to develop a curriculum that inspires them.

When students graduate from Collège du Léman, they know that humanity and compassion are as necessary as the understanding of science, math or history. They possess a resilience that gives them the courage to take risks, the stamina to succeed in a highly competitive world, the ability to think critically and the will to challenge existing assumptions.

At Collège du Léman, our aims are high and our goals are demanding, but those always seem to be the most exciting to achieve. We help educate and form the future “movers and shakers” of the world.

I invite you to explore our website to get an impression of what we provide for international and local students and their families. Or, even better, arrange a visit to see it all in person. We look forward to meeting you!

Thomas Schädler
Director General
