International K-12 School Near Geneva – Collège du Léman

Founded in 1960, Collège du Léman ranks amongst the world’s leading international K-12 schools in Europe.


With 1,900 students from over 100 different countries across day and boarding programs, CDL is the largest private for-profit K-12 school in Switzerland.

Within 50 years, CDL has built and preserved an excellent reputation for its comprehensive range of bilingual Pre-School, Primary, and Secondary educational services. Languages of instruction are French and English, although students can select from a wide range of additional language courses.

Five international exam qualifications, such as the Advanced Placement (“AP”), International Baccalaureate (“IB”), the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (“IGCSE”), the French Baccalaureate (“FB”), and the Swiss bilingual Maturité (“SM”), offer a unique breadth of choice and assure the flexibility that high school students will seamlessly enrol in any other secondary school and post-secondary institution around the world.

These diplomas lead students to the most prestigious universities worldwide, especially in the USA, Great Britain and Western Europe.

CDL is one of the few schools in Switzerland to be accredited by two international accreditation bodies, including the Council of International Schools and the New England Association of Schools and Colleges.

At CDL, students benefit from the latest technological advances in education and first-rate facilities.

The buildings are equipped with state-of-the-art science facilities, a new library and media centre, performing arts classrooms and a multi-purpose theatre. In addition to the academic buildings, 8 residential villas accommodate more than 200 boarding students. Every villa forms a tight knit community and quickly becomes a home away from home.
