The Eagle

Aiglon College


The Eagle Programme is targeted towards the older students at Summer School, and offers them a greater challenge and set of opportunities. The programme is structured around a course of your choice with a mix of full and half days of learning (theoretical and practical learning). For days where the course ends at lunchtime, it is followed by an organised afternoon activity or excursion. This is a new course structure designed to challenge and interest older students that are ready for something new!

All Eagle programme students take part in an Aiglon expedition to spend a night in a mountain hut.

Students that choose the Eagle Leadership and Mountain Adventure Course or the Eagle Business and Entrepreneurship Course go on an additional 2 day (overnight) expedition as part of their course to extend their learning off campus.

All fees (apart from the 1 week SAT course) include 100Chf per week pocket money, which is given to students by their houseparent.
