Welcome to Aiglon College
Why we love it
Good to know
The world is open to discovery. When students join the Aiglon Summer School, they are entering not just as learners but explorers. Our rich lessons combined with unique outdoor adventures ensure they leave confident, capable and ready for whatever's next.
Our students and parents would agree that the Aiglon Summer School experience is a unique first step on a fascinating journey. Whether intended as a taster in consideration of applying to our full academic year, or just to obtain a new perspective in this beautiful part of the world, students aged 8-17 will find their experiences are ideal preparation for the challenges ahead, with enormous fun to be had too!
Students benefit from the same care and camaraderie that is evident in our house boarding system; nurtured by house parents who genuinely care for their students - no matter how short the stay, and bonding with fellow students while partaking in inter-house competitive activities. Students leave Aiglon with a sense of pride in being accepted as a member of their house.
Two Distinct Programmes
THE CLASSIC (AGES 8-12)
New opportunities to combine enriching education with expeditionary adventure awaits in the Classic summer programme. This is a chance to dive into untested waters with the assistance that students will be supported and encouraged.
THE EAGLE (AGES 13-16)
An ambitious, exciting journey supports the development of the young people who enter our Eagle summer programme. We help students prepare not just for our mountain expeditions, but to relish opportunities in the world beyond.
