Admissions

Thank you for considering Leysin American School in Switzerland for your child. Choosing the right school for your child is very important, and we understand that the decision to enroll your child in a boarding school can be a difficult one.

For almost 60 years, we have nurtured the talent of our students, motivating them to reach their highest potential in education, sports, and the arts.
