History of our school

Collège Champittet, is a private school in Lausanne that has been providing outstanding education to both local and international students for over 110 years.

  • histoire du Collège

1903: A private school is born in Lausanne, Collège Champittet. A group of Dominican Fathers from France established the prestigious private school as a Swiss Catholic school for boys. Their stewardship of the private school lasted for nearly 50 years.

1951: Leadership of this private school in Lausanne was passed on to capitular fathers of the Great Saint-Bernard, who maintained Collège Champittet’s growing reputation for teaching excellence and spirituality. In the same year, Français Langue Etrangère (FLE) programme for intensive French classes becomes available for non French speakers.

1960: Collège Champittet is a Swiss private school welcoming more than 600 students, including several boarding students. Increased demand for places encouraged the school to add another school building.

1984: Our Lausanne private school opens its doors to girls for the first time.

1998: The capitular fathers left our Lausanne private school in the care of a group of experienced educators, who remain focused on building on its commitment to aim for excellence. During that same year the school opened its junior section.

1999: The French Baccalaureate is offered alongside the Swiss Maturité.

2004:  Another private school is inaugurated in Nyon, 20 kilometres from Geneva. This is followed by a nursery in Lausanne, catering for children aged 18 to 48 months. A total of 800 students are now enrolled in the school.

2006: Collège Champittet becomes a bilingual private school, giving students a firm grounding in both French and English.

2009: The International Baccalaureate is added to the school curriculum. In the same year, the boarding house is being renovated.

Our private school also becomes part of the Nord Anglia Education family of international schools.

2012: As a private school in Lausanne, Collège Champittet has embraced the learning potential of 21st Century technology, providing primary classes with iPads and secondary groups with Macbook Air laptops as part of a mobile classroom initiative in partnership with Apple.

2013: The Lausanne private school celebrates its 110th anniversary, displaying original sculptures by Rodin, Renoir, Pompon and Dali in the gardens.

In September 2013, all students from 4th to 14th and their teachers have their own iPad provided by the school.
