A uniquely international independent co-educational boarding school, Le Rosey was established in 1880 and provides a multi-lingual, multi-cultural, and dual-campus environment. Rosey’s main campus is in Rolle, twenty miles from Geneva. The alpine winter campus (January-March) in Gstaad is equipped with the same academic facilities as in Rolle.
Le Rosey offers a dual-language curriculum. English and French are the languages of instruction, and all students (whatever their country of origin) choose one of these as their principal educational language. Yet Le Rosey is also a multilingual school with mother-tongue and foreign language classes taught by native-speakers in over twenty languages. As well as most principal European languages, these include Arabic, Japanese, Turkish, Farsi, Korean, Chinese (Putonghua), etc.
All graduating students sit the full IB diploma (in English, French or as a bilingual
diploma) or the French baccalauréat.
Le Rosey is also committed to holistic educational principles, and students participate in demanding sports, arts and expedition programs.
We truly appreciate universities who are interested in visiting Institut Le Rosey. With over 400 students representing 62 nations, Rosey offers incredible diversity and opportunities. We have 160 students in the final two years studying either the French Baccalaureate or the International Baccalaureate.
We are quite happy that you meet with our students and we will do all we can to help facilitate your visit. We prefer that students do not miss academic classes and therefore we offer the following times for visits:
12:00 noon (Tuesday – Friday), this provides an opportunity for a presentation followed by lunch with the counsellors and the students
15:30 (Weekdays, except Thursday)
18:00 (Mon-Fri), this has proven to be a popular time as it allows for visits to other schools in the area.
Please note from January to March we are on our Gstaad mountain campus. Due to the timetable and scheduling, visits here are difficult to arrange.
