So why should Collège Champittet be the place where your child spends their crucial school years?
Our qualified and inspiring teachers deliver lessons that will inspire your child and give them a prestigious educational foundation. We draw from the finest elements of the Swiss and French education systems, and are supported by a global network of schools.
Nord Anglia Education provides Collège Champittet with access to the finest educators worldwide, and the chance to connect with students and staff from around the world.
The Nyon private school is a close-knit and warm community of staff, teachers and parents, but we also take our role as a member of the community very seriously.
Our Nyon private bilingual school opened in 2004, but it is the realisation of a century’s experience in inspiring excellence in children in Switzerland. Collège Champittet was founded in 1903 by Dominican fathers who aimed to meet the intellectual and spiritual needs of their students. In more than 110 years that have followed, we have stayed true to the principle of improving a child’s character as well as their grades.
Our foundation initially as a Catholic private school has instilled within us a strong system of Christian values and respect, a culture than remains strong, sets us apart from many other private schools, and prepares our students well for their future career and social development.
A holistic approach to education
We believe that strong academic tuition can open many doors in life. However, a great private school can do so much more to turn a child into a confident, rounded character.
Our staff are skilled and talented at encouraging our students to explore and develop their talents, whether they are creative, sporting, musical or academic.
We schedule visits and trips to build confidence, teamwork and cooperation, and we support the work of parents in giving children the values they need to be outstanding, valuable members of society.
Swiss local school with an international outlook
We are a Swiss private school which believes in building students' confidence, their values, and their sense of their place in the world.
From an early age, students are encouraged to read and write in French and also to learn English, giving them the broad language skills they need to thrive in a globalised world. We also focus on the learning. Our links with Nord Anglia Education international schools across the world allows us to make the world a smaller place for students, giving them the chance to meet, talk and collaborate with children on different continents and from different cultures.
Focused and dedicated staff
Collège Champittet’s staff share a passion for teaching. We only hire educators with an ability to inspire, and the character to provide effective support and guidance to promising minds.
