Collège Alpin Beau Soleil

Collège Alpin Beau Soleil

Founded in 1910 Collège Alpin International Beau Soleil is one of the oldest private boarding schools in Switzerland. It is located 1350m above sea level on the Swiss Alps of Villars-sur-Ollon, Switzerland


The Beau Soleil guiding principles are:

  • Act responsibly
  • Behave with respect
  • Be ambitious
  • Develop a sense of effort

These principles blend extremely well with the Round Square ethos and ideals. Beau Soleil prides itself in being a truly International school, a bilingual boarding school with 240 students, from over 45 different countries. The school has an extensive co-curricular programme, leadership and adventure being the key tenants of this. Living in a mountainous environment, there is a lot of scope to really challenge our pupils and develop leadership. Beau Soleil encourages leadership and democracy at all levels with a number of the after school clubs being run by students.

What being a RS school means to us

Beau Soleil is very proud to be part of the Round Square organisation.  It is important recognition that we also strongly believe education is much more than academic achievement. In addition the Global Round Square community has much to offer our pupils; allowing the pupils to meet other cultures and identify and deal with unfamiliar issues.
