Institut Montana Zugerberg is a non-profit, swiss and international co-ed day- and boarding school. It was founded in 1926 and is comprised of an International Section as well as a Swiss Section.
The International Section’s purpose is to provide an education to prepare students for university entrance. It is a recognized IB World School and our students have entered universities in numerous countries including the UK, the USA, Canada, and Switzerland.
The Swiss Section prepares its students for entrance to Swiss universities. All Swiss universities have very high standards and are considered world class.
Since some students are beginners in English and in German, there are special courses tailored to their needs (English as a Foreign Language and German as a Foreign Language).
The class sizes range from six to fifteen students, and the teacher student rate is 1 to 6. All teachers of the International Section are fluent in English and most are native speakers.
We require that all teachers hold a Bachelor’s degree or its equivalent and many have earned a Master’s or a doctorate.
The Swiss Section teachers hold degrees from German and Swiss universities, and have the equivalent of either a Master’s or a doctorate and an educational degree. In both sections the average teacher has more than seven years teaching experience and stays in average eight years at Montana.
Currently 270 students are enrolled and our student body comes from all around the world. This diversity is best illustrated by the fact that all five continents are represented and our students come from more than 36 different countries.

Academic Year or Semester Abroad
LAS is a coeducational boarding school of 380 students (grades 8-12) from more than 50 nations. LAS combines an American educational philosophy with the rigor of a European academic institution. We offer the International Baccalaureate diploma and a comprehensive US university preparatory curriculum. LAS offers a diverse extra-curricular program which includes exciting sports and recreational activities, enriching cultural travel, and fine arts courses. The French-speaking village of Leysin, just two hours from Geneva, is a tranquil paradise and a top ski resort during winter months. Visit www.las.ch for more information.
In August 2009, LAS will be opening a new building, and is expanding our program to include weekly (5-day) boarding. This will allow students to come to Leysin on Sunday evening for study hall, and leave directly after school on Friday to go home for the weekends. This is an excellent middle ground alternative for parents that are seeking an excellent education for their child, but do not want to “let them go” yet.
