At LCIS, we pride ourselves on our warm and friendly approach from the moment you contact us, on your child’s first day, and throughout their time at our school. We’ll do everything we can to ensure your experience of applying to and joining LCIS is smooth and exciting.

JOINING THE LCIS COMMUNITY

A place at LCIS is offered upon evaluation of your family’s application form and your child’s previous school reports and depends on availability within the year group requested.

Raphael Vergnaud
Director of Admissions and Marketing

Born in the USA, I grew up in Switzerland and pursued my university degree in Canada. My experience at international schools has truly shaped who I am as a person today. As someone who is extremely passionate about both sports and education, two industries that help shape future leaders, I consider myself fortunate to have worked in both. As the father of a young child, I know how important it is to choose the right school for your child! Here at LCIS, we strive to make sure your needs are always met. Please feel free to get in touch!

Lyliane Stewart
Admissions Manager
It has been my pleasure to assist families in their search for a new school ever since I joined LCIS in 2016. Having lived abroad and raised a multi-cultural and international family, I understand the challenges faced by multi-cultural, bilingual, and expatriate families, and I'm honoured to be a member of a school that supports families from around the world.
