Located in the breathtaking beauty of the Swiss Alps, Leysin American School has a history of nurturing talent and motivating students to succeed in education, sports and arts. We bring together students from around the world to create a campus community with a global perspective and a family atmosphere. Our ethos of maintaining strong links with students and parents underpins the education we provide from grades 7 through 12.
We believe in the traditional Swiss values of quality and excellence, and our academic program reflects those attributes. Extracurricular activities—including ski term, team and adventure sports, and excursions to cities that many only dream of visiting—round out the outstanding lifestyle experience.
Our school is accredited by the New England Association of Colleges and Schools and confers an United States High School diploma to its graduates. We also offer the International Baccalaureate degree as an optional additional to the US diploma.
Our student body numbers approx. 330, with almost 60 different nationalities represented. We are a boarding school and the students reside as well as study in the school.
