World-Class Summer School for Teens at the Lake Geneva Campus in Switzerland

For a better future


Course Description

One of the Most Exceptional Swiss Boarding Schools Offers You “Catch Up” or “Level Up”

The summer school is the finest bridge back to school. The focused academic environment is enhanced in efficiency by smaller classes and fewer learning hours. Shorter study durations mean teachers can set precise goals and students will find it easier to meet them. Intense, strategic immersion in a subject, plus more attention from your tutor, is guaranteed to improve grades. Therefore, World-Class Summer School has always been highly recommended as the perfect ‘catch-up’ or ‘level-up’ for every student. World-Class Summer School at the Lake Geneva Campus is the perfect place for 8-15 year old. Located in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, the camp offers revision courses in the morning, a choice of sport, tech and creative activities in the afternoon and evenings full of cultural and social pursuits. Every weekend, your child will be taken on excursions to get to know the culture and environment in one of the world’s most celebrated societies. For those who likes to make the most and best of a summer, World-Class Summer School at Geneva Campus is the right address.


In Rolle, 30km from Geneva city, the main campus (for the boys) and the La Combe campus (for the girls) are situated within landscaped grounds covering 30 hectares.

The campus was established in 1880 in the chateau with its extensive estate. The historic original building, dating back to the 14th century, was then a run-down medieval castle, but it was carefully renovated and the campus improved during the 20th century.

The Paul & Henri Carnal Hall, known as the school’s Arts & Learning Centre, includes a cooking lab, visual arts and photography rooms, theatre and music studios. At the heart of the building is located the 900- seat concert hall.

In our Lake Geneva Campus, students are grouped according to age: Juniors (8-12 years old), and Seniors (13 to 15 years old).

Juniors and Seniors live in separate buildings. A Junior student may not share a room with a Senior. 

Juniors have an early bedtime (21h30 vs 22h00 for the Seniors); Juniors and Seniors follow similar weekend excursions but are divided into 2 groups; in the dining room, Juniors and Seniors are assigned to different tables. 

Boys and girls sleep in separate buildings. However, sports and activities are mixed. 

Some of the youngest Juniors may be in a co-ed building, where one floor is for boys and one floor is for girls. 

Counsellors and teachers live on the floor with the students. The aim is to create a family atmosphere, to ensure the well-being of each child and to have a permanent presence to maintain order and security. 

We allocate rooms 24h before camp starts and this information is not provided to parents in advance. Any request to share a room with someone in particular must be communicated to the school** least** one week before the camp starts. No room changes will be allowed after that. We try to make sure that each room is occupied by 2 different nationalities/cultures to ensure an intercultural exchange can happen. 

All our rooms are spacious twins with ensuite bathrooms. A mini-safe is provided per student. All bedding and towels are provided. 

There is no air conditioning in the rooms. Fans, however, are available in case of a heat wave. 


Internationally inspired meals are served buffet style. Meals are prepared by our own chefs who pay meticulous attention to quality, presentation and flavour to produce healthy, balanced menus. During mealtimes, each student is assigned a table which is also shared with the camp teachers. Attendance at all meals is compulsory.

Any food allergies (gluten free, lactose free, peanuts, etc.) should be clearly indicated in the health questionnaire. Meals on the menu containing pork will be indicated. Vegetarian menus are also offered.

Unfortunately, we are unable to provide Kosher, Halal or vegan meals.

We know how important birthdays are, and especially so if it’s the first time the children are celebrating it away from home. We’ll organise cakes, balloons and sing happy birthday in the dining room.
