Located in Switzerland, Le Châtelard is an international educational center dedicated to the integral formation of young ladies. Le Châtelard seeks to complement and perfect our students’ previous formation by drawing from the best that European culture has to offer. The Swiss Alps and the nearby Lake Geneva provide the ideal setting and backdrop for an educational experience that offers ample opportunities for personal growth
the students by developing in them a love for authentic values and a sense of what is good, right, noble, just and beautiful
the character of the students as the foundation stone of all virtue and integrity
the students by giving them the appropriate knowledge corresponding to their grade
Le Châtelard Academy was built as an elegant hotel for the European nobility. It has conserved its Belle Époque style.
Surrounded by a beautiful park of 4 hectares, the building is in a valley, between the mountains and the lake, at an altitude of 1000 meters.
The weather in Switzerland is strongly influenced by the Atlantic Ocean. Very often, the westerly winds bring moist and mild maritime air into Switzerland.
This means that during the winter, this air has a warming effect and in the summer a cooling effect. It ensures that there is enough precipitation in most regions all year around. Therefore, the Swiss Alps act as a climate barrier between Southern and Northern Switzerland. Southern Switzerland receives indeed much milder winters than the Northern part because the Mediterranean Sea mainly influences it.
My experience at Chatelard is one that I really cannot fully describe. It was something that I would love to live over again many more times, since it was something that left a deep impression on me that will last my whole life. For me, my year at Chatelard was the best year of my life so far because it changed me as a person, and I discovered a lot of things about myself. I learned new things and traveled to many places where I had tons of fun because I was sharing all of those moments with my friends from Chatelard , that I could even call sisters. Thanks to Chatelard I discovered new talents and ever since I went I have wanted so badly to return there and relive that year. I would like to be able to send my daughters to Chatelard one day
