Welcome to the international exhibition for education on the fair TEEVIT between 29.11. 07 and 1.12.07 in Tallinn, your Lyceum Zuoz / Switzerland
Set in a beautiful alpine landscape near the resort of St. Moritz, the Lyceum Alpinum Zuoz is an international co-educational boarding school with about two hundred boarders from all around the world and 100 local day students The Lyceum Alpinum campus and sports fields occupy an extensive site overlooking the picturesque alpine village of Zuoz. For more than 100 years, the values of tolerance, fairness and respect for community have remained at the heart of a Lyceum Alpinum education. The school philosophy is founded on tradition and innovation and finds its true expression in the spirit of Zuoz which promotes the supreme importance of life-long learning.
The school offers three academic programmes: The International Baccalaureate, the Swiss Matura and the German Abitur. The International Baccalaureate is a comprehensive university preparation course based on an approach to learning involving critical inquiry and the education of the whole person. The aim of the Swiss Matura, which is recognized nationally and internationally, is to fulfil university entrance requirements by providing a broad general education. All examinations are run in compliance with the Swiss Federal Matura Regulations. The German Abitur is recognized for admission to national and international universities and is conducted in-house by Lyceum teachers under the supervision of the German ministry of education. Our graduates go on to study at some of the world’s leading universities such as the London School of Economics (LSE), Cambridge, Yale, St.Gallen (HSG) and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETH).
At the boarding school students live in comfortable modern surroundings. Younger boys and girls enjoy the benefits and security of a family-like environment, while the older students are encouraged to take on greater responsibility. Our students receive individual support and additional help from subject teachers, while for those who want to stretch their limits even further there are added challenges. There is a varied extra-curricular and weekend programme including sports, leisure as well as cultural activities.
Sports and Games, with a strong emphasis on team sports such as cricket, Eton fives, football and ice hockey are fundamental to the way of life at the Lyceum Alpinum Zuoz. Games, in which our boarders participate twice a week in addition to the normal sports programme, promote physical fitness as well as team spirit, mutual respect and fairness. The range of school sports on offer also includes skiing and snowboarding as well as soccer, tennis and golf.
We offer two camps of two weeks each for girls and boys between the ages of 11 and 15. In the mornings, students attend German or English lessons in small groups, in the afternoons there is an action-packed sports programme or personalised Golf School on the 18-hole golf course Zuoz-Madulain.
