Daily Life

Daily life at Collège Champittet’s boarding school in Switzerland offers a perfect blend of variety and routine in a safe environment.

Daily life at Collège Champittet’s boarding school in Switzerland offers a perfect blend of variety and routine in a safe environment. Our structured schedule enables boarding students to focus on their learning and wellbeing, while our location near Lake Geneva and the centre of Lausanne allows them to experience a rich assortment of activities outside of their daily schedule.

After classes have ended for the day, boarding school students have assigned study periods in the evening, with access to tutors for individual support and guidance. Beyond the classroom, we encourage boarding students to pursue personal interests, hobbies and extracurricular activities with their fellow classmates. In this way, we help students establish a healthy and sustainable balance between work and play.

Typical Daytime Schedule for Boarding Students

Approximately half of our boarding school students stay with us for the weekend. Different extracurricular activities are organised every Saturday and Sunday. Middle school students participate in both activities, whereas high school students may choose to participate in both or just one activity.

Weekend activities vary significantly from week to week and according to the time of year. Examples include:

  • Water sports on Lake Geneva (sailing, paddleboarding, water-skiing)

  • Cultural visits to different parts of Switzerland, Italy or France

  • Climbing

  • Hiking

  • Mountain biking

  • Shopping trips (such as to the Christmas markets)

  • Skiing (every weekend from January, throughout the ski season)

  • Visits to local restaurants
