Private School Chantemerle

Chantemerle during Covid-19 (coronavirus)

Since March 2020, Chantemerle has stepped up to the challenges of Covid-19 and the demands of existing parents worried about the safety of their children and the pandemic impact on their continued education. Chantemerle successfully reopened its doors last May, and remained open for the summer camps and the upcoming school year.

We are lucky to have our own in-house nurse and staff to implement efficient protection safety measures and quarantine services. Moreover, being in a contained environment in nature makes it easier for us to create a safer environment for all our students.

Welcome to Chantemerle school


Founded in 1966 by Mathilde and Jean Wegmüller, Chantemerle is a private boarding school located in Blonay (Vaud). Chantemerle welcomes Swiss and international students starting at ages 6 for school year programs, study abroad programs and educational summer or winter camps. With a maximum capacity of 65 boarders and day students, our school is renowned for the quality of its teaching and its personalized family atmosphere. Beautifully located in the heart of nature, close to Geneva, Montreux and Lausanne, Chantemerle offers a healthy, safe and structured learning environment.

Our purpose is to help every student to reach their potential through personal and academic success. Based on tradition and common sense our educational approach aims at transmitting strong values, a taste for effort and the passion for learning in a rigorous and caring environment.

From primary school to high school, Chantemerle students learn the skills and methods necessary to pursue their studies in confidence according to the orientation of their choice: apprenticeship, Matura, French or International Baccalaureate (IB).

In a rapidly changing world, it is important to focus not only on academic knowledge but also on human and practical skills. These skills are an integral part of Chantemerle’s school curriculum and are developed through sports, artistic projects and outdoor activities.

We are aware that choosing the right school for your child is an important decision. Mr. Yann Wegmüller, Program Director (+41 79 393 8767), is available for a first discussion or a visit of Chantemerle.
