Boarding at Collège du Léman is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that shapes our students’ futures. In our diverse boarding community in the heart of Switzerland, every student feels inspired to learn.
As well as providing a strong academic education, our caring team equip our students with the 21st century skills they need to thrive. This includes helping them to develop the thoughtful, caring side of their characters, as well as their intellect, resilience, and ambition.
Really importantly, we encourage our boarders to discover their place in the world. Real-life activities and daily routines encourage them to take responsibility and be respectful towards others.
Your child will love living at Collège du Léman. They’ll rest, study, and socialise in comfortable residential houses that have everything they need to feel at home. This includes spacious bedrooms, ensuite bathrooms, fully equipped kitchens, contemporary communal spaces, and private gardens.
Of course, our students are just moments away from all our facilities, making it easy to take part in extracurricular activities – or spend time in beautiful outdoor spaces.
"I love my Boarding House because we’re like one big family. Everyone loves and cares for each other and we genuinely respect each other’s cultures. This year it’s been really challenging entering a boarding school and a new environment for the first time in my life really, but my roommate, my friends and my House Parents made me feel like I am with my other family even knowing it. I look forward to the next couple of years."
"I love my boarding house because it provides me with the opportunity to share a household and living space with people from diverse parts of the world. Being a part of this boarding house has truly broadened my horizons, allowing me to meet individuals from various backgrounds and cultivate empathy towards others."
"New Portena is a place filled with happiness. No one needs to hide, as we are comfortable and can be ourselves. I know that if I start dancing there will always be another girl that will join me. New Portena is friendly, it is a place in where we understand each other, the students are empathetic and help whenever they see someone down, especially the House Parents, they are always the first to notice when something is wrong, and they do their absolute best to help resolve the issue. This is why I love New Portena. "
"I love my Boarding House because of the amazing environment and atmosphere there is inside of Leman, with, smiles and positive energy start nourishing my day from breakfast on. After a long day of studying, we come back to the house where I meet up with my friends and we are able to chat, play games and study together, which makes all of those activities more enjoyable. I know it might be difficult being away from family and home, but all the House Parents make me feel like I'm just at home providing me with care and discipline to stay focused and on track to achieve my goals."
"In our house, I can be sure to find my own personal space, yet there is also always space for laughter and games. We all respect each other's daily customs and decisions, embracing that we are all different from each other and that we all come from different cultural backgrounds. It is a place where we can all unwind, be ourselves, but are always sure to have some guidance and company with us along the way. "
