Welcome to Chantemerle school.
Founded in 1966 by Mathilde and Jean Wegmüller, Chantemerle is a private school located in Blonay (Vaud). Chantemerle welcomes Swiss and international students ages 6 through 18 for school year programs, study abroad programs and educational summer or winter camps. Our purpose is to help every student to reach their potential through personal and academic success. We believe in success through education. We want to transmit to our students the strong values, a taste of effort and the pleasure of learning in a rigorous and caring environment. With a maximum capacity of 70 boarders and day students, our school is renowned for the quality of its teaching and its personalized family atmosphere. Beautifully located in the heart of nature, close to Geneva, Montreux, and Lausanne, Chantemerle offers a peaceful, safe and healthy environment where students learn to become autonomous, motivated and responsible. Chantemerle prepares for the admission to Swiss high schools (gymnases) as well as to the French Brevet des Collèges. Chantemerle also offers tailored residency solutions to highschool students preparing for the Swiss Matura at a partner gymnase or the IB diploma at the Haut-Lac school. Chantemerle promotes the personal development of all its students through a rich and varied program of sports, artistic and cultural activities. Our Sport-Art-Studies program allows to combine an official academic program with high-level artistic or sports training in the best possible conditions. We are aware that choosing the right school for your child is an important decision. Mr. YannWegmüller, Director of Programmes, is at your disposal for a first interview ora visit of Chantemerle.

It is not just a school but an exceptional living environment! The teachers are dedicated to the students and give them their full attention with kindness and patience. I highly recommend this school. Besides, I would have liked to have gone there in my youth.
I attended Chantemerle 28 years ago,has been an incredibile experience and I keep this piace always in my heart! I cannot wait for my daughter to live the same experience.
I studied here 30 years ago, and I really enjoyed the family atmosphere they have is not found in other schools that I have been to, later in my life. I am taking my son there very soon.
My Daughter Hannah attended Chantemerle for 6 weeks. Everyone in Chantemerle went out of their way to be kind and helpful. Hannah had a wonderful experience and learned loads. As a parent, I felt very confident that my daughter was being well looked after. She was treated more like a family member than a paying guest.
