Summer school profile

Unique vacation experience only at Aiglon

The Aiglon Summer School students leave with greater confidence and knowledge of themselves, and understanding of others. That is because in addition to a packed timetable of lessons, they get to participate in one of the things that makes an Aiglon education unique – Expedition. Each Summer School includes a mini-expedition, appropriate to the age of participants. At Aiglon, young people have the chance to hike a small peak, learn new skills such as orienteering and campcraft, enjoy teamwork and relax around the campfire. That's all rounded off with a night under the stars.
