LAS summer edge
LAS summer edge is an exciting and exclusive summer program that emphasizes self-discovery, highlighting the LAS mission statement of "developing innovative, compassionate, and responsible citizens of the world." Each week of summer edge is dedicated to exploring one of these traits in depth, introducing students to well-known inspirational people and inviting them to participate in fun activities that are designed to help them explore their unique strengths and build on their self-confidence.
LAS summer edge believes that energized minds are curious minds. By striking a balance between adventure and education we aim to find the sweet spot where excited, curiosity-driven learning occurs. Students will spend three action-packed weeks unlocking their creative potential, perfecting their team member and leadership skills, and jumping headfirst into the adventure activities Switzerland has to offer, including parapenting, whitewater rafting, and indoor skydiving!

Take to the trees and make your way through a fun maze of bridges, swings, and ladders. A day out at the ropes course is sure to get your adrenaline pumping!
