Our promise: your child will leave our school with everything they need for success – whatever they choose to be or do in life.

Truly Personalised Learning

Our personalised learning approach means your child will be given the challenge, support and opportunities not just to succeed, but to truly flourish. 

Vibrant International Family

We are more than a school. We are a family, and our parents, students and teachers all work together to make our school the best place for our students to learn, grow and flourish. 

Outstanding Learning Experiences

Life-changing opportunities, such as through our global collaborations with MIT, The Juilliard School, and UNICEF, inspire our students inside the classroom and beyond.

A LEARNING EXPERIENCE Designed For the future

Our internationally recognised curricula are strengthened by six core educational pillars that underpin everything we do, shaping our children’s future together.
Academic excellence
By personalising every student’s education through a combination of challenge, support and opportunity, we help your child achieve outstanding results, and create a pathway to the world’s top universities—both in Switzerland and around the world.

With the IB Diploma, our students leave LCIS with an internationally recognised qualification that is renowned for best equipping students for undergraduate study. Our wide range of IBDP subjects allows students to focus on their strengths and realise their interests, while ensuring academic rigour and excellent future opportunities.

In 2020–21, our IBDP students scored an average of 36 points, matching the global average, and recent graduates go on to attend highly-rated universities like MIT in the US, McGill and the University of Toronto in Canada, Edinburgh and King’s College London in the UK, Leiden University in the Netherlands and EHL here in Switzerland.

Inspiring and dedicated teachers
When your child joins LCIS, they’ll become part of our school family, where students, their parents and our teachers work together to make our school the best place for our students to learn, flourish and excel.

As a member of Nord Anglia Education, the world's leading premium schools' organisation, we only recruit the best internationally and locally trained teachers. We’ll ensure your child’s teachers get to know them so we can support them through their learning journey to achieve their absolute best.

Our teachers are always learning. With exceptional professional development opportunities available through the award-winning Nord Anglia University, our staff stay ahead of the latest teaching methods and learning strategies, so your child can benefit from passionate, dedicated teachers.

Innovative learning environments
Our teachers are here to ignite your child’s imagination, using the latest teaching technologies to enhance their learning experience.

At LCIS, our purpose-built learning spaces are supported by modern education technologies to enrich every lesson. We bring your child's learning to life by delivering inspiring education that ignites our students' imaginations. Our learning spaces and technologies are designed to support us in providing the best possible education for our students - an education that is fit for the future our students will inherit.

As part of the Nord Anglia family, our students connect and collaborate with their international peers across the world on Global Campus, our unique online platform.

Exceptional learning experiences
At our school, students embrace a variety of experiences, from interacting with the NAE global family to working with MIT or The Julliard School. These develop their integrity, courage, and independence from a young age, empowering them to make a positive impact on the world.

Our glorious surroundings -Lac Léman, the Jura Mountains, and the Swiss Alps -mean that skiing, hiking and outdoorsmanship are integral parts of the academic calendar. For instance,   students  venture out to complete their Duke of Edinburgh Award, which not only boosts confidence, but also stands out on a university application. 

Our broad Performing Arts programme is strengthened by our collaboration with The Juilliard School. Our collaboration with MIT takes a real-world, hands-on approach to teaching STEAM subjects. With UNICEF, we raise awareness of the UN Sustainable Development Goals and learn to create local solutions for global issues.

The Citizenship Expedition to Arusha, Tanzania gives students priceless experience of community service while they learn about sustainability and the environment. The Personal Challenge Expedition in Les Martinets, Switzerland develops their perseverance, and challenges them to overcome personal boundaries while enjoying the breath-taking views. LCIS even offers the exclusive Exhibitioner   Award, encouraging students to grow and thrive in their interests outside the curriculum, developing skills for life beyond the classroom. 

With so many experiences to choose from, every student finds a way to nurture their talents and develop new skills.

Our social purpose
At LCIS, we challenge every student to become a responsible, positive contributor to society. We strive to foster confident global citizens who’ll make our world a better place.
Our social purpose

Our students make meaningful change through global outreach, by fundraising and volunteering for causes they care about. Our global partnership with UNICEF helps open our students’ eyes to the world around them and encourages them to develop their own sense of purpose.

On top of that, we encourage students to deliver meaningful change through local outreach, where they can join fundraising and volunteering activities on issues they truly care about. Each year, our students support hundreds of local causes through activities with UNICEF and the United Nation's 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

As part of the IBDP curriculum, students study Creativity, Action, Service (CAS) and Theory of Knowledge (ToK), which give them the tools to research, reflect on, and manage student-led service projects. Through our commitment to delivering the best Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education, we ensure students develop the skills to thrive both as individuals and as members of society.

The Nord Anglia Education Family
When you join our global school community, you become part of the Nord Anglia network of students, parents, and alumni, opening a world of opportunities.

We’re not just a school, but a family, and our parents, students and teachers all act together as one to care for and nurture your children, making our school the best place for them to learn, grow and flourish. Plus, as part of the Nord Anglia family, your child is welcomed into a global network, bringing them a multitude of exciting opportunities.
