Visite & Voyage 3
Champittet has never been an ordinary school for me! It’s a place where your personal growth, the development of your character and your flourishment are all emphasized and take a top priority. For any situation, whether personal, social or academical, I know I would have someone to talk to and be supported. Furthermore, I can myself act as a voice of our community by participating in the student council, in the activities of our humanitarian Foundation and by leading various student projects. Everyone can go forward, be heard and take part in continuous improvement, which is a unique opportunity that I love at my school. Boarding student
