Le Châtelard offers a competitive and challenging curriculum based on Switzerland´s learning standards and those established for our Network of Schools. All subjects are taught in the French Language.
Sports and artistic courses are also available as an additional touch to the formation of our students. The elective course fee includes three weekly sessions first and third term and one weekly session on the second term (ski season). In courses such as photography and tennis students are expected to bring their own equipment or to purchase it in Switzerland as the school does not provide them.
Le Châtelard’s academic program is designed to prepare students to take official DELF (Diplôme Elémentaire de Langue Française) exams. During the school year, students are given the opportunity to attend three official exams sessions in France. At the end of the school year, most of them obtain the B1 or B2 international diplomas. These are recognized worldwide and allow the students to enter French universities. www.cilfa.fr
The aim of this course is to prepare the students to the Cambridge English test, commonly known as First Certificate in English. They work on enhancing their written and spoken English at an upper-intermediate level (level B2 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages).
