St. George's International School is a premium day and boarding school for boys and girls from the age of 1 to 18, comprising over 60 nationalities. Situated on the banks of Lake Geneva, with magnificent views of the Alps, the school occupies 12 acres of beautiful landscape and gardens. This setting promotes intellectual calm and a deep connection to the outdoors, with incomparable opportunities for hiking, skiing, water sports and more.

It was founded in 1927 by two young graduates of Oxford University and has grown to become a well-recognised international school with small teaching groups and individual attention regarding academic programmes, career advice and a structured pastoral care. Junior school children follow a bilingual programme entitled 'Learning Means the World'. Senior students can choose between the Pre-Diploma, the IGSCE, the IB Diploma and the General Diploma programmes. Additional languages such as Spanish, German, Russian and Chinese can also be learnt and practised daily. This ensures that students not only live amidst a multicultural environment but also develop an understanding of different beliefs, religions and lifestyles.

In fact, a great deal of focus is put on liberal arts and the humanities at St. George's. From a very young age students are encouraged to grow a mind of their own and explore their creativity through art & craft classes and inspiring cultural trips. Collaborations with NGOs are also very frequent and allow students to develop a social conscience.

The school motto "Levavi Oculos" ensures that St. George's International School is dedicated to lifting its students' eyes to embrace the exciting challenges and opportunities that await them.
