The more you overcome, the more capable you are to set out upon ambitious journeys. The Eagle programme will help you prepare you not just for our mountain expeditions, but help you relish the challenges in the world beyond.
Those attending The Eagle programme are setting off upon journeys of their own, hungry for new horizons and an independence which will help shape them as young adults. Each week of our Summer School is designed to give them expert guidance, while encouraging them to wholeheartedly engage with exciting new experiences - whether that is physically on our mountain during challenging expeditions, or academically in the classroom. The Eagle is aimed toward teenagers who are hungry to experience more challenging subject matter, to get to grips with ideas that go beyond the fundamental and really delve into fascinating opportunities for discovery. As such, we have developed a range of courses which reflect The Eagle students’ readiness for more complex ideas, featuring a structure that places emphasis upon both individual achievement and the development of greater teamwork skills. Each academic option is led by experienced teachers, who regularly audit their curriculum to ensure students receive the most effective and most relevant educational experience available.
At summer camp , the primary language is English, and as a result students receive a high degree of exposure to the language during their day-to-day interactions. We know from decades of experience that combining recreational activities with interactive learning methods results in students receiving an effective and enjoyable linguistic education. Our Interactive English course - available for students of beginner, intermediate, and advanced abilities - provides the opportunity to gain a greater practical and theoretical insight into this valuable language. Through interactive games and collaborative classroom activities, students will develop their skills on the path to becoming confident and competent English language communicators. Our passionate educators have crafted a curriculum which embraces project-led methods for engaging students with the tools they need to take their language learning to the next level.
Our campus is housed in the Swiss Alpine environment, and as such the mother tongue of our host country is French. Our courses place great emphasis upon incorporating interactive approaches to learning a language, and students will discover opportunities to explore the surrounding regions, utilising the skills learnt with our passionate teachers. As part of the Summer School activities schedule, we hold a French social evening, during which all students learning French come together for an additional opportunity to practice their improved skill set with fellow summer Aiglonians and Francophone staff. We fully embrace the concept that enjoyable educational exercises, supported by interactive activities and new experiences are an excellent method for students to absorb their new language.
At summer camp , with such a diverse student group, we love a curious and international mindset. This new course offers our older students a chance to take part in a varied programme that looks at international relations, business development and global politics. Each morning will touch on a different subject that will offer discussion and debate. Students will also practice and develop presentation and communication skills, with an additional emphasis on both professional and social etiquette. A course to develop awareness on a global scale!
Summer camp has the perfect setting for a leadership course, using the school campus and the surrounding mountain environment. This course teaches the key elements of leadership, and includes some classroom theoretical learning which will then be taken and practiced outdoors. The course has a varied structure with practical activities including camp craft and survival skills, body language and public speaking, team challenges, map reading and orienteering. The Summer School overnight expedition is an excellent way for students to put into practice some of the skills they have learnt during the course.

Eagle students have the opportunity during this morning course to learn about the film industry and the different techniques of film making. It is both a theoretical course, and also a practical course, with students getting hands on with filming a project, and then editing it, ready for a final presentation. A wonderful introduction to a new subject area!
Photography and Web Design Course
This is a morning course for Eagle students to take advantage of our wonderful surroundings, and how to take the perfect picture with our skilled photography tutor! After designing their own website, Eagle students will then learn how to develop and edit their pictures, building a portfolio of portrait and landscape photography.
There are those students that just live for the challenge of sport, and the joy of team games! This active morning course will focus on teaching students tennis, padel tennis, volleyball, table tennis, badminton, golf and other team sports in a group lesson environment. During the course students will also explore the local community and experience the varied mountain geography.
Afternoons and evenings are dedicated to activities supported by Summer Camp’s holistic framework, taking advantage of our awe-inspiring Alpine environment. The activities for the Eagle programme are tailored to enrich the 13 - 16 year old age group, giving them an exciting environment to engage with, as well as make a diverse range of new friends from attendees hailing from more than 40 countries. Each student on the Eagle programme takes part in an overnight adventure expedition to develop outdoor skills, and enjoy time in the mountains with activities such as canyoning and river rafting. Students attending The Eagle are embarking upon important journeys of their own - this is a transitional time in their lives, and our programme will help to provide them with experiences that will empower them confront changes with a sense of confidence and a spirit of discovery.
Students are allocated their boarding house based on gender, age and to include a diverse range of nationalities. Each boarding house has a live-in team (house parent and two tutors) who manage the well-being of every student and are the first point of contact for parents. Rooms are spacious and are typically shared with two or three other students of a similar age.
Summer School meals are prepared by the school chef and his permanent staff who can cater for most special religious or other dietary needs.
