Our History

Over the last half-century, Collège Du Léman has helped more than 20,000 alumni learn the value of openness, internationalism and co-operation.

Collège Du Léman was created to meet the needs of a new world, in which ambition and a global perspective could take you to amazing places.

In the late 1950s, Francis and Inge Clivaz saw a city that was becoming home to many international businesses and organisations. Geneva needed a school that could provide a truly international education for students from many different countries and a welcoming, safe atmosphere for students and parents alike.

The school opened in May 1960, on the site of a former school. Its peaceful location on the right bank of Lake Geneva placed it between the thriving city and the beautiful countryside.

Its commitment to global-mindedness enabled it to secure its first bilingual accreditation from the European Council of International Schools (ECIS) and the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools in 1978. Another accreditation from the New England Association of Schools and Colleges followed in 1998.

It is now home to more than 1900 students and over 100 nationalities.

For more than 50 years, we have made it our mission to help students to embrace the values that will help them succeed anywhere they wish to go. We give them the confidence to discover and hone their talents, and the openness to explore and respect new languages and cultures.
