The Classic offers a focused morning course of your choice that will allow your child to broaden their language skills, engage with a outdoor activity such as tennis, golf or horse riding, or study a STEM based subject. Each academic option is led by experienced teachers, who regularly audit their curriculum to ensure students receive the most effective and relevant educational experience available.
Whichever courses you choose to engage with, you’ll discover that we’ve created a learning experience that opens students up to a range of new knowledge and fresh possibilities.
Interactive English Course
Our Interactive English course - available for students of beginner, intermediate, and advanced abilities - provides the opportunity to gain a greater practical and theoretical insight into this valuable language.
Through interactive games and collaborative classroom activities, students will develop their skills on the path to becoming confident and competent English language communicators. Our passionate educators have crafted a curriculum which embraces project-led methods for engaging students with the tools they need to take their language learning to the next level.
At Aiglon, the primary language is English, and as a result students receive a high degree of exposure to the language during their day-to-day interactions. We know from decades of experience that combining recreational activities with interactive learning methods results in students receiving an effective and enjoyable linguistic education.
Interactive French Course
The value of students being global thinkers cannot be overstated, and the ability to communicate in multiple languages opens up not just useful educational and vocational opportunities for students, but also the chance to connect meaningfully with other cultures. The Interactive French courses that we’ve created - for beginner, intermediate, or advanced abilities - provide students with the tools to improve their linguistic skills through interactive games and collaborative classroom projects.
Our campus is housed in the Swiss Alpine environment, and as such the mother tongue of our host country is French. Our courses place great emphasis upon incorporating interactive approaches to learning a language, and students will discover opportunities to explore the surrounding regions, utilising the skills learnt with our passionate teachers.
As part of the Summer School activities schedule, we hold a French social evening, during which all students learning French come together for an additional opportunity to practice their improved skill set with fellow summer Aiglonians and Francophone staff. We fully embrace the concept that enjoyable educational exercises, supported by interactive activities and new experiences are an excellent method for students to absorb their new language.
STEM subjects offer some of the most fascinating and enriching opportunities. Our Science and Engineering explorer course is the perfect environment to encourage the natural curiosity of students who live for experimentation, students who take things apart to understand the inner workings, and students who are obsessed with discovering how the universe works!
Students create a course folder of activities which range from rocket building and robot programming to mountain science and botany. The course is hands-on and interactive - a great new extension to the Summer School.
Recommended for students that have intermediate English and above.
