a passport to a bright future
Extraordinary learning experiences will enrich your child’s education and open their eyes to thrilling possibilities.

learning without limits

At Collège Champittet, there’s no limit to what our students can achieve. Through a breadth of experiential activities – on our campuses, across Switzerland, and around the world – your child will grow in confidence, learn about themselves and others, and develop the breadth of skills they need to succeed.

Whether it’s conquering Mount Kilimanjaro, supporting Collège Champittet Foundation projects, or inventing the future through our trailblazing STEAM collaboration with MIT, our students become talented leaders, activists, adventurers, and thinkers. We make sure they’re safe, supported, and happy, too, inspired to excel and create their own future.

The arts
The arts enrich our students’ education, and we’ll encourage your child to express their creativity from an early age. Whether it’s singing, acting, or dancing, our students benefit from a world-class performing arts experience through our collaboration with The Juilliard School. Art studio, drawing, improv, and street jazz clubs unlock artistic passions, too. Your child can also learn from exceptional instrumentalists by signing up for private lessons.

Science and technology
Our STEAM activities – enhanced by our collaboration with MIT – reimagine learning in new and extraordinary ways, feeding our students’ curiosity and igniting their imaginations. At our coding club, for example, students use the latest software to programme machines, games, and animations. Truly unique activities, like our ‘big builders’ and ‘Innov-entrepreneurs’ clubs, encourage our students to think critically and solve problems.

Your child will discover a lifelong love of adventure at Collège Champittet, as they embark on cultural, sporting, and service trips in Switzerland and across the world.

Residential trips

For many students, our residential trips are their highlight of the year. Both in Switzerland and abroad, your child will enjoy a variety of immersive overnight expeditions that add an exciting element to their education.

Our older day and boarding students travel the world on international adventures to Europe, Asia, and Africa. From conquering Mount Kilimanjaro to supporting Collège Champittet Foundation projects in Thailand and Madagascar, our students develop a sense of self, become increasingly independent, and learn to overcome challenges.

Trips to Europe include a spiritual retreat in Rome, the chance to delve into London’s history, and explorations of ancient Greece. Our location close to the French and Italian borders enables our boarding students to enjoy regular weekends away, too.

There’s so much to see and do around our campuses, from evenings at the opera to adventures in the great outdoors.

Local activities

We organise a wide range of educational trips around Lausanne and Nyon. Each activity is carefully planned to broaden horizons and add a real-world perspective to your child’s learning.

These include pre-school visits to the farm, where our children harvest fruit, meet the animals, and learn all there is to know about local flora and fauna. Our younger learners also explore the beautiful UNESCO site of Lavaux, where they enjoy train rides, a forest walk, and spectacular landscapes.

On both our Pully and Nyon campuses, our Forest School immerses our children in the sights and sounds of our environment. They exercise, explore, invent, initiate, and dream, as they connect with nature and develop a host of transferable skills.

Older students visit the Lausanne synagogue as part of their religious culture programme, and learn about diplomacy, international relations, and decision-making at Model United Nations events around Europe. They also enjoy trips to local museums like Platform 10, which is a hub of European culture.

Skiing is an important aspect of Swiss culture, and we encourage all our students to learn, hone their skills, and grow in confidence.

Every Wednesday, our Grade 6-12 students spend time sliding, slaloming, and speeding through the mountains. Our boarders make the most of winter weekends, too, hitting the slopes during the season.

We also organise an annual ski camp for students in Grades 7-12. Working with qualified instructors, our students ski and snowboard, throw themselves into team-building activities, and learn important life-skills.

looking after your child

At Collège Champittet, your child’s health and happiness will always come first.

We have an outstanding pastoral care team, which includes a psychologist, nurse, and safeguarding experts. Specialist coaches, tutors, mentors, mediators, boarding house parents, and a priest provide the additional guidance our students need to feel valued, confident in themselves, and equipped to succeed.

Innovative approaches – like our open-air Forest School programme – boost our students’ social, emotional, and physical wellbeing. And on our Global Campus learning platform, your child will have access to a wealth of specialist tools and resources.

a community driven by passion and purpose

Our strong sense of social purpose will empower your child to be the difference, as they take the lead in school, our community, and across the world.

Demonstrating determination, resourcefulness, and ingenuity, our students affect real change through the Collège Champittet Foundation. They develop innovative fundraising ideas and implement projects that transform life for communities in Madagascar, Thailand, Lebanon, and here in Switzerland. Our students also stand up for what they believe in and make their voice heard through our exclusive collaboration with UNICEF.

Through each experience, lesson, and activity, we’ll ensure your child develops our core values of respect, ambition, courage, openness, and integrity. This will prepare them to thrive in today’s globalised world.
