Maturité suisse - bilingual classes

The Swiss Maturité bilingual stream English-French at LCIS was successfully launched in 2016 and now offers a well-established programme for the classes of 7ème, 8ème, 9ème, 10ème and 11ème HarmoS.

Students joining our Swiss Maturity programme can benefit from an innovative curriculum, blending the best of two pedagogical approaches: the rigor and versatility of the Swiss curriculum combined with a transformational and stimulating pedagogical approach, which characterizes our school.

Our Swiss maturité programme is an optimal preparation for ambitious students to complete a Bilingual Federal Swiss Maturité in the coming years. The French and English bilingual curriculum is based on the plan d'études romand (PER), with a high number of lessons taught in English.

Students in the bilingual Swiss maturité programme join their peers for all lessons conducted in English, including the IPC interdisciplinary Topic Work in 7ème, English language and literature, music, sports and Performing Arts.

Our bespoke curriculum offers a unique opportunity for a bilingual immersion programme with a truly international perspective, thanks to the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme, which runs in parallel to the maturité suisse programme taught in the French language and developed in collaboration with Collège Champittet.

Values ​​of the International Baccalaureate

The Middle Years Program (MYP) encourages students aged 10 to 15 to make concrete connections between their course of studies and the real world, preparing them to succeed in their future academic and career choices. The goal of the programme is to nurture a love of learning whilst developing the key Learner Profile attributes that are at the core of the IB Programme. Successful learners strive to be Inquirers, Knowledgeable, Thinkers, Communicators, Principled, Open-Minded, Caring, Risk-Takers, Balanced, and Reflective.

The programme allows students to focus on a wide range of topics and themes that resonate locally, nationally and internationally. The result: young people able to think creatively, critically and thoughtfully. We encourage our students to broaden their horizons, empathize with others and lead meaningful lives. Our students not only acquire knowledge, they develop their creativity, thinking skills and critical thinking.
