Welcome to Monte Rosa !

Front door

Virtue through work: It is this motto that has always guided us here, at Institut Monte Rosa. And it is this motto that will inspire your son or daughter too, for the period you entrust us with their education. As a member of our "big family", they will learn to discover life's true values in an ongoing encounter - with other nationalities, with other cultures, and with new friends. Naturally, this means serious work. But it also involves a great deal of fun. And it will provide your child with all the strength for success in life. You have my word."

- Bernhard Gademann, Director -

Our philosophy

Small classes and personalized instruction designed for optimum results, vital interaction between teachers and students, and principles based on genuine educational value: these are the ingredients that make up a climate in which school life is challenging and invigorating. On-going dialogue and the pleasure of accomplishment fashion the personality of students expected to address tomorrow's realities.

Our boarding school is the best place to learn and to improve oneself efficiently thanks to our structure (from 2 to 10 pupils per working group) and our educational team, composed of the best teachers, meticulously selected for each subject.
