The Aiglon Summer School students leave with greater confidence and knowledge of themselves, and understanding of others. That is because in addition to a packed timetable of lessons, they get to participate in one of the things that makes an Aiglon education unique – Expedition. Each Summer School includes a mini-expedition, appropriate to the age of participants. At Aiglon, young people have the chance to hike a small peak, learn new skills such as orienteering and campcraft, enjoy teamwork and relax around the campfire. That's all rounded off with a night under the stars.
● Practice all the core language skills ● English/French conversations and writing ● Written progress report to be issued at the end of the course
