Boarding at Collège du Léman

The prestigious Collège du Léman boarding school is nestled in a pristine valley between the Jura Mountains and Lake Geneva. The campus, only a 20 minute drive from Geneva city centre, houses state-of-the-art classrooms and recreational facilities including a swimming pool, multipurpose gymnasium, tennis courts, and a sports field.

The gap programme will take place at Collège du Léman in Geneva, Switzerland. The campus is home to more than 1900 students from more than 100 nationalities. The 8-hectare campus boasts state-of-the-art facilities, a new gymnasium, a swimming pool, tennis courts, a fitness room, a soccer field, a canteen restaurant and a shop.

As soon as you step on our campus, you will feel right at home and will no doubt enjoy the mix of cultures and languages spoken. If you do not live locally, you will be staying in an unsupervised serviced apartment in the city of Geneva (this option means that you will be a ‘residential student’). If you live locally, you will be given the choice to either live at home and be a ‘day student’ or choose to stay in a serviced apartment and be a residential student.
