LAS summer in switzerland

Would you like to spend your summer making friends from all over the world—or learning a new language—or having fun in the adventure program—or singing in a musical—or even making a rocket? Summer in Switzerland offers you the opportunity to do all of this and much more!


Boarding school life is about more than just study. In addition to becoming part of a Faculty Family, students also ski during the winter months and have the opportunity to travel on selected weekends to experience the larger world just outside our door.
