La Côte International School is a private international school based in Aubonne, Switzerland. The modern campus is conveniently located between Lausanne and Geneva, with stunning views of the Swiss Alps and Lac Léman.
The school offers its students unmatched international learning opportunities, combined with truly personalised academic support and the highest educational standards, to motivate all students to achieve more than they ever thought possible.
The school offers only curricula that lead to accredited qualifications recognised by the world's leading universities. It also offers enriching learning opportunities to ensure that students are equipped with the skills to shape the world they inherit.
Primary students follow an enhanced International Primary Curriculum with French options that range from a beginner's course to a truly bilingual program. This provides an excellent transition into the diverse international secondary curriculum offer.
In secondary, students are supported to achieve excellent academic results and further develop their skills in two or more languages. In Years 10 and 11, students study for their IGCSE, the world's most popular international qualification for 14 to 16-year-olds. In Years 12 and 13, students aged 16-18 study the IBDP, the gold standard in education. Through a broad range of subject choices, targeted support, and personalised guidance, students are supported to achieve their very best academically.
IB students can opt for a single-language or bilingual IB diploma, strengthening their application to top universities in Switzerland and abroad.
LCIS is a member of Nord Anglia Education (NAE), the world's leading premium schools' group, and is, therefore, able to recruit the finest locally and internationally trained teachers committed to nurturing and inspiring every child. Consequently, LCIS students achieve outstanding academic results, and graduates are accepted to top universities in Switzerland and worldwide.
With approximately 40 nationalities represented at the school, supporting children in their own cultures and languages is at the core of the school's philosophy. Through outstanding education and international opportunities unmatched by other schools in the area, the school cultivates in them the qualities, attributes, and skills needed to shape the future.
The school's Performing Arts programme benefits from its collaboration with The Juilliard School. The school's collaboration with MIT emphasises hands-on learning of STEAM subjects. In partnership with UNICEF, the school raises awareness of the UN Sustainable Development Goals and explores local solutions to global problems.
LCIS is led by Andy Puttock, formerly Global Education Director for NAE. He has been instrumental in driving NAE's strategy for building an outstanding education for their students worldwide.
