Top Day And Boarding School In Geneva - Collège du Léman
With nearly 1,900 students from over 100 nationalities, Collège du Léman International School Geneva is Switzerland’s largest private for-profit K-12 school.
Since its foundation in 1960, this international day and boarding school has built and sustained a remarkable reputation thanks to its well-rounded and bilingual academic programmes covering Pre-School as well as Primary and Secondary Education.
Classes are instructed in both French and English, but students at CDL benefit from a wide range of language courses and a truly international environment where new languages can be practised on a daily basis.
CDL offers up to five internationally accredited diplomas: the Advanced Placement (“AP”), the International Baccalaureate (“IB”), the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (“IGCSE”), the French Baccalaureate (“FB”), and the Swiss Maturité (“SM”). This flexibility allows students to pursue higher education literally anywhere in the world; and most of them are offered places in leading universities in the UK and the USA.
If that weren’t enough, CDL is accredited by the Council of International Schools and the New England Association of Schools and Colleges; an accomplishment that few schools in Switzerland can claim to have.
CDL students also have access to ground-breaking technology and benefit from world-class facilities including science labs, an awe-inspiring library and media centre, performing arts rooms and a multifunctional theatre.
The boarding accommodation is also noteworthy as students are housed in 8 well-equipped villas where they immediately feel a secure sense of community.
