As a Swiss international day and boarding school, we offer the best of Swiss and International academic programmes, personalised support and a home away from home.

Students experience our international community as they become valued members of society. They learn new hobbies through our various extracurricular activities. They become well-rounded students on their path to their desired university and a successful career. All while living in a place with high security and plenty of nature.

With 380 students from 55 countries, this is their place to grow - into a scholar, responsible young adult and a truly global citizen.

We offer a choice of academic paths, depending on whether the longer-term ambition is to graduate with the Swiss Matura or the International Baccalaureate Diploma.

  • A Bilingual Elementary School for grades 1-6 where students will learn half of the subjects in German and the other half in English based on the Swiss curriculum. Boarding is only available for students who are 10 years old or older.
  • A Swiss Bilingual Secondary school for grades 7-9 which is a specialised bridging programme for students who need extra help and support with German in order to transfer to the Swiss Senior High school (Schweizer Gymnasium).
  • A Swiss High School for grades 7-12 where students will learn in German and eventually learn English and French as well which is based on the Swiss curriculum. Successful completion guarantees a direct entry into a top Swiss university.
  • An International School for grades 6-12 where students can join the Cambridge CLSP and IGCSE, the IB Diploma programme or the High School Diploma.

Our students are offered individualised academic support, college counselling and are supervised day and night on our 60-acre campus that is well-connected to major cities in Switzerland but also secluded at 1000 mt above the sea, surrounded by nature and with stunning views over the beautiful lake of Zug.

We also offer a 2-week summer session programme for students aged 10-15 in July where they will learn German or English alongside various academic summer classes and take field trips. As our summer motto goes, this is the place where students Learn.Grow.Move.Meet.
