Welcome to Chantemerle school

Established in 1966 by the Wegmüller family, Chantemerle is an international private boarding & day school for students ages 6 to 18. Over the years, our school has established an international reputation for academic excellence and its personalized family atmosphere.

Beautifully located in Blonay, close to Geneva and Lausanne, Chantemerle offers a warm and healthy learning environment where students of different ages and nationalities learn to live together in harmony. Once they have left Chantemerle, as adults, they will continue their lives with the strong sense of solidarity and friendship that characterizes our boarding school.

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 every students have the best educational experience they can possibly have.

Chantemerle follows the French National Education guidelines and prepares students for the French National diploma and for admission into Swiss Gymnases. Graduating students can remain resident at Chantemerle and prepare for the Swiss Maturity or the IB diploma. Throughout the year, Chantemerle also proposes French Immersion programs, as well as Summer and Winter language camps.

We understand that choosing the right school for your child is a very important decision. A visit at Chantemerle or a Skype session will help us better understand your child’s needs and your expectations. Mr Yann Wegmüller (Program Director) will be delighted to make the arrangements.
