Welcome to Chantemerle

A very warm welcome to Chantemerle School from all our students, staff and the Wegmüller family. This website aims to give you an insight into our work and to give you the opportunity to see some of the exciting learning and activities that are happening here.

Established in 1966 by Jean and Mathilde Wegmüller, Chantemerle is a private boarding and day school for boys and girls from ages 5 to 18. Beautifully located on the Swiss Riviera between lake Geneva and the Swiss Alps, Chantemerle offers a warm and structured learning environment to over 50 students from all over the world.

Over the years, our school has established a strong reputation for its strong academics and its positive approach to education. Our aim is to educate and nurture every child, ensuring they acquire the knowledge, life skills and attitudes to fulfill their potential and be successful in the future. A great team of dedicated and hard-working teachers, educators and support staff strive to ensure that your child has the best educational experience they can possibly have.

Chantemerle offers Academic School Year, French Immersion and Study Abroad programs as well as Summer and Winter camps. Through our residential program, and in partnership with the Alphalif and the Haut-Lac school schools, students aged 16+  can continue prepare for the Swiss maturity or the IB programs while benefiting from Chantemerle’s home-like and structured learning environment.
