Course Description

Break the Mold, This Is A Perfect Antidote to Months Spent Indoors

Imagine a summer camp designed to help your teen undo the social and academic fallout of months spent at online school. A chance for your child to meet like-minded friends from around the world, exchange views, share experiences and form lifelong bonds. The Senior Summer Camp is the perfect antidote to months spent indoors and will enhance your child's independence, social skills and creativity. The camp runs from July to August with a minimum stay of two weeks. The campus combines the characteristics of a traditional Swiss boarding school with one of the most advanced learning environments and a commitment to innovate in order to define a new era of education. The campus pioneered the trademarked Individual Development Programme, IDP - a holistic view of the world, inside and outside the classroom that prepares students for university and beyond. Home to students from 50 different nationalities, an average class size of 8 students per class and a teacher to student ratio of 1:2, our Swiss private school is in a unique position to deliver on its mission.


The summer camp is home to art-nouveau-period villas set in 100’000 m2 of private parkland in St Gallen, surrounded by century-old nut-trees and the carefully landscaped gardens that create the canvas for a unique and tranquil learning environment.

Student residences are organized into separate accommodation for boys and girls. In these boarding houses, students of the same age-group live and study together, share community spaces and join organized free-time activities.

Girls’ and boys’ residences are characterized by bright colors, cherry hard wood floors and simple but yet elegant furniture, combined with modern and tasteful en-suite marble bathrooms.


The kitchen team at our Swiss boarding school has a firm commitment to cooking without artificial colors, artificial taste intensifiers or thickening agents such as wheat flour, wherever possible. The culinary philosophy of the Rosenberg kitchen team is based on a profound commitment to quality; producing carefully planned and balanced meals to support students’ demanding daily learning and activity schedules.
