About Institut Le Rosey

Founded in 1880, Institut Le Rosey ( offers a rounded bilingual education in English and/or French for 440 students aged 8-18, leading to the IB Diploma and French baccalauréat.  It also offers a unique two-campus system through its move from a 75-acre château setting by Lake Geneva to the school’s alpine campus every winter term. An IB World School, Le Rosey is fully accredited by the Council of International Schools (CIS) and MSA.

An International Mission

Le Rosey is a highly international community, with well over 60 nationalities in its student body, and over 20 on the teaching staff.  The cultural and linguistic diversity of its 440 students is guaranteed by selective admissions with no more than 10% of students from any country. This multinational mix creates a special and very friendly campus atmosphere, as well as enhancing global awareness and international understanding.


In addition to promoting bilingualism and biculturalism, Le Rosey offers a broad academic programme and range of IB and “Pre-Bac” subjects, with an exceptionally strong tradition in foreign languages.  Class sizes are small and the main campus in Rolle is particularly well equipped.  All students without exception sit the full diploma of the IB or the French “bac”; results are excellent (IB/French bac average of 36+ points), and all students go on to universities in the USA, UK and across the world, with well over 30% to the Ivy League, Ivy league Plus, Oxbridge, and top-ranked universities across the world.

Sports, Arts and Expeditions

Le Rosey is committed to holistic educational principles.  An exceptionally varied, sports, expedition, arts and cultural programme takes full advantage of facilities which include riding stables, a sailing centre, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, and a fitness and “wellness” centre.  There is also a strong winter sports tradition. The school boasts an exceptional state-of-the-art Arts and Learning Centre and 900-seat concert hall ( on its Rolle campus.
