Secondary

During middle and high school, students start to make important choices about their future. Our Swiss private school supports them every step of the way as they solidify the skills and knowledge they'll need to achieve their goals.

At Collège Champittet Pully, secondary school encompasses grades 9 to 14 (ages 12 to 18).

Secondary School: An Overview

Our private secondary school is divided into two parts:

  • Grades 9 and 10 – with a core middle school curriculum common to all students
  • Grades 11 to 14 – focused on diploma preparation

Our approach to teaching enables students both to learn, and to understand how they learn. It helps them develop into inquisitive and highly skilled lifelong learners. They develop the teamwork and leadership skills they'll need to succeed in all their future endeavours.

Our French-English bilingual programme is also available in secondary school and becomes optional from the 9th grade. There are also two levels of German language teaching: standard and advanced.

Our Secondary School Curriculum

For the first two years of secondary school (grades 9 and 10), all students follow broadly the same curriculum, with some optional modules. These two middle school years prepare students for the diploma path that they will take from grade 11.

During grade 10, students will make a choice about which of the three challenging diploma programmes they wish to follow in high school:

  • The Swiss Maturité
  • The French Baccalaureate
  • The International Baccalaureate

Whichever of these programmes students decide to follow, our private high school experience is designed to prepare them to apply to some of the best universities in Switzerland and worldwide.

From Grade 9 your child will also receive career counselling and guidance. This provides them with the support they need to prepare for university and the world of work.
