About Collège du Léman (CDL)

Over the last half-century, Collège Du Léman (CDL) has helped more than 20,000 alumni learn the value of openness, internationalism and co-operation. Collège Du Léman was created to meet the needs of a new world, in which ambition and a global perspective could take you to amazing places. In the late 1950s, Francis and Inge Clivaz saw a city that was becoming home to many international businesses and organisations. Geneva needed a school that could provide a truly international education for students from many different countries and a welcoming, safe atmosphere for students and parents alike.

Collège Du Léman opened in May 1960, on the site of a former school. Its peaceful location on the right bank of Lake Geneva placed it between the thriving city and the beautiful countryside. Collège Du Léman's commitment to global-mindedness enabled it to secure its first bilingual accreditation from the European Council of International Schools (ECIS) and the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools in 1978. Another accreditation from the New England Association of Schools and Colleges followed in 1998. It is now home to more than 1900 students and over 100 nationalities.

I have gone there for just 2 weeks. Had a lot of fun. If I had the oppurtunity go there again I wouldn't say no.

Dedicated teachers who cultivate an interest and love for a specific subject, not merely teaching. My daughter has been there for the past year in middle school and is a happy balanced student.

I have three children at Collège du Léman and they are all incredibly happy - after several changes of country and school, they were able to settle into Collège du Léman quickly and easily and have made friends with children from a variety of countries.

My 5 year old son is really happy in preschool. Being of Russian mother-tongue, his english and french has greatly improved and is now close to fluent in all 3 languages!!
