Aiglon College is a school that will challenge you like no other. It is an independent, non-profit school located high in the Swiss Alps, in the village of Chesieres-Villars. Our founder, John Corlette, had a unique vision of what education should be when he enrolled the first six students in 1949. Aiglon continues to be a visionary place today, one where we are proud to nurture the next generation of global citizens and leaders.
At Aiglon College, we believe in inquiry-based learning. Students are challenged to go beyond the accumulation of factual knowledge and to address the greater questions that frame our world. We celebrate creativity and originality as vital qualities that equip individuals to reach new horizons of knowledge, appreciation and understanding.
Aiglon College's remarkable national and cultural diversity is an inspiring example of how, on a small scale, we are able to build a harmonious and fulfilled community.
Wonderful time in my life. I spent a year here in 1961. Amazing views across the valley. I remember running down the winding road to the valley floor with our phys-ed class. My wife and I went back in 1983 or so.
