Chantemerle is located in Blonay, overlooking lake Leman near Geneva and Lausanne. Beautifully located in nature, our school offers a caring and healthy learning environment. Through education and teaching, we bring students to their full potential through personal and academic success. Our educational approach is positive and takes a caring look at each student, a look of success for all. It is personalized and respects individual learning strategies.
