Excellent Boarding Facilities:
There are 8 boarding houses for girls and boys, each with its own houseparents and tutors providing a high degree of pastoral care. Each pupil belongs to a house, and it is here that they live, relax, sleep, work and make friends.
The houses are all within a few minutes walk of each other and provide common rooms and dining facilities as well as accommodation for the boys and girls, who sleep not in dormitories but in groups of no more than 4 in the privacy of study bedrooms. Boys and girls are accommodated in separate houses.
Every child has a personal tutor who keeps a watchful eye on his or her progress, offering advice and help where necessary. In charge of each house are two Houseparents, who are responsible for the welfare of all the pupils in their care. They are helped in this by a Deputy Houseparent and an assistant tutor, who are sometimes resident in the house, as well as a team of visiting tutors.
Located in the alpine village of Chesières-Villars in the canton of Vaud, Aiglon College is close to the ski resorts of Villars and Villars-sur-Ollon. The cities of Montreux and Lausanne are approximately 20km and 40km away respectively.
Geneva Airport is the closest international airport and is only 1.5 hours away by car. It offers frequent international flights to many parts of Europe and the rest of the world.
Our campus combines the traditional charm of chalet-style buildings with modern classrooms, well-equipped laboratories and a campus-wide computer network.
