Swiss private education from elementary school to high school

Ready for high school, prepared for life

An internationally recognized curriculum

Our program follows the French National Education guidelines. The program is primarily taught in French and prepares for the French National Brevet as well as for entry admission exams into Swiss Gymnases & international High Schools.

Building strong academic foundations

In a serene and inspiring  environment, we encourage our students to think mathematically and scientifically, to write and read in French for pleasure, to gain confidence in English and German while developing their creativity and appreciation of the arts.

Every student is unique. In Chantemerle’s personalized learning setting – inside and outside the classroom – teachers and educators align their teaching approach with each student’s learning style while maintaining high standards.
