The Lyceum Alpinum Zuoz, founded in 1904, is a Swiss international boarding school set in spectacular alpine landscape near St. Moritz, Switzerland. The Lyceum campus occupies an extensive site with its own sports fields overlooking the alpine village of Zuoz. In 2004 the school celebrated its 100th jubilee. Our school philosophy is founded on respect for tradition combined with innovativeness. It finds expression in the Spirit of Zuoz, which attaches supreme importance to tolerance, mutual respect, fair play, commitment and life-long learning. Respectability and orderliness in everyday life, respect and helpfulness towards others coupled with an open-minded attitude: these are the guiding principles of an education at the Lyceum Alpinum Zuoz, and they equip ambitious and enthusiastic young people with the qualities they need for life. About three hundred students between 12 and 19 years of age from around the world follow programmes leading to the International Baccalaureate Diploma (IB), the Swiss Matura (German) or the bilingual Swiss Matura (German/English, German/Italian) and German Abitur. Tolerance, fair play and respect for community values are at the heart of a Lyceum education.
Each summer, hundreds of students journey to Zuoz for the International Summer Camp & Junior Golf Academy. We offer two camps of two weeks each for girls and boys between the ages of 10 and 15. In the mornings, students attend German, English or French lessons in small groups, in the afternoons there is an action-packed sports programme or personalised golf lessons.
The Preparation Academy is our summer school with an academic focus that offers optimal preparation for the IB, the A-Levels or any other high school programme. Students from age 14 to 17 study for two weeks, five lessons a day, English, Mathematics and they will learn more about general study skills such as learning techniques, planning or exam anxiety.
