About

Located in the stunning Swiss Alps, Leysin American School is an international boarding school that has been bringing enriching, educational experiences to students since 1961. 

From practical, engaging in-class academics to experiential learning on international cultural trips, we believe in bringing together students from around the world and providing them with an education that sparks their curiosity and encourages them to be the best global citizens they can be.

LAS invites young scholars in grades 7 through 12 to pursue their interests and excel in academics, sports, and the arts. Extracurricular activities—including team and adventure sports, Faculty Family events, ski term in the winter, and excursions to cities that many only dream of visiting—round out the phenomenal lifestyle experience that LAS students receive.

Plan your visit to LAS today and see why so many students and their families have chosen to make Leysin American School such an important part of their lives!
