Winter Holiday Courses at Institut Monte Rosa by Lake Geneva
With a maximum camp size of just 40 pupils, the Monte Rosa Winter School fosters a sense of community unlike any other. Students can choose to let loose on one of Switzerland’s top 12 winter resorts, while daily language classes add an element of learning to the programme.

Located on Lake Geneva’s eastern shores, Institut Monte Rosa is an elite co-ed school focusing on personal development and growth. Small class sizes allow teachers to adopt a more personalized approach, while pupils get the chance to hone their social skills in a friendly and welcoming environment. Flexible learning programmes, 24/7 care, and bespoke teaching practices allow Institut Monte Rosa alumni to succeed academically and in later life.
The famous Institut Monte Rosa Winter School requires a minimum stay of one week, although parents can extend up to one month if they wish.
