LAS summer edge is an exciting and exclusive Switzerland summer program that emphasizes LAS’s mission statement of “developing innovative, compassionate, and responsible citizens of the world. Each week of LAS summer edge is dedicated to exploring one of these traits in depth, introducing students to inspirational people and inviting them to participate in fun activities that help them explore their individual strengths and build on their self-confidence. LAS summer edge believes that energized minds are curious minds. By striking a balance between adventure and education we aim to find the sweet spot where excited, curiosity-driven learning occurs. Students will spend three action-packed weeks unlocking their creative potential, perfecting their team member and leadership skills, and jumping headfirst into the adventure activities Switzerland has to offer, including parapenting, whitewater rafting, and indoor skydiving!

AMAZING SWISS EXPERIENCES From the second they step onto our alpine campus, LAS Summer students enjoy some amazing experiences. Following a busy morning and afternoon of programs and activities, all students participate in our evening socials. These campus-wide events have included activities like glow in the dark dodgeball, dances, banquets. All students also have the opportunity to participate in excursions throughout the summer! Some of the past exciting trips we have offered include Zermatt, Bern, Interlaken, Zurich! SHARED COMMON SPACES In addition to the shared evening and weekend events and excursions, students between both programs can look forward to sharing some common spaces. LAS Summer students will live across multiple LAS dorms, and they will have a chance to meet and socialize in the cafeterias, lounges, and Magic Mountain Athletic Center. Take a look at the video to take a virtual tour through our campus!

DORM LIFE Each LAS Summer in Switzerland dorm is home to several live-in faculty members. These staff members are available throughout the summer to ensure our students have access to guidance, care, and support throughout their time in Leysin. Students will also experience the summer with a roommate. Living with a roommate is a particularly valuable experience as it teaches students about new cultures, how to live respectfully and harmoniously with someone else, and most importantly it offers the potential of a lifelong friendship. Most of our students say that living with other students and making new friends from around the world is their favorite part of summer school!
