A School For Life

We live in a globalized world, where bilingual education and networking are indispensable in academic education and training from an early age. The Your VIP Partner presents you Le Rosey, a Swiss international school that bets in these strands together with a teaching of excellence.


At Le Rosey, located in Rolle, Switzerland, the student's day begins at 7:00 am, when they prepare themselves, make the bed and have breakfast. Classes begin at 8:00 am and go until 12:20 pm, with a pause to take a hot chocolate, as required by the Swiss climate. On Monday at midday, there is a general meeting, a period of dialogue, reflection and exchange of ideas. Classes restart at 13:30 pm and go until 15:30 pm. Daily, from 16:00 pm students have access to various activities, with art and sport being mandatory. It is a time dedicated to enhance the talent, root values ​​and develop individual and social skills together, promoting the union of students. Dinner is served at 19:30 pm and obeys to strict rules. The clothing is formal, the places are marked by a personal napkin, and the meals are served by students themselves.

Teachers have dinner with them and the students have to rise every time an adult comes into the dining room, and they can´t leave without permission. Time from 20:00 pm is devoted to homework, social and cultural activities. Bedtime is between 9:00 pm and 11:30 pm, depending on the age of each student. It should be pointed out that during the winter period, the classes take place at the campus of Gstaad, a small Swiss village, where schedules and classes are adjusted to the practice of winter sports, like skiing.

The Benefits of Bilingualism

English is a world language, but the world is also multipolar and multilingual, so international education is not confined to attending an English, British or American-speaking school. Le Rosey, the most expensive school in the world, founded in 1880 by Paul Carnal, maintains high educational standards over five generations, always at the forefront of innovation and pedagogy through a unique educational balance. With capacity for 420 students from 60 countries, the admission is based on a quota system, ensuring that no more than 10% of students per country attend the school. Students choose a major language study, English or French, but learn other languages as well, and they attend at least one course in another language, once they have acquired the basic knowledge. Some people choose the study program in two main languages ​​simultaneously, thus obtaining the Rosey Bilingual Diploma. This context allows for the consideration of a trilingual program of studies rather than just bilingual. This school argues that bilingual study helps in developing additional language skills in children and youth, stimulating cognitive development, exposes students to two languages ​​with global importance, provides contact with two forms of education, and to study other cultures and relationships with others, facilitating future professional and cultural inclusion in any country. Fuad II, last king of Egypt, Jimmy Choo, the famous designer, Julian Casablancas, musician and member of the band The Strokes, Michael Kadoorie, hotel billionaire from Hong Kong, are some of the celebrities that attended Le Rosey.

Aware that knowledge is never too much in the training of future leaders, the school invested in a modernization program which culminated in 2014 with the construction of the Paul and Henri Carnal Hall, a unique design space that combines culture, art and communication. Here, the students show and develop their individual talents, but also receive theatre performances, music, musicals, conferences, etc. The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Hélène Grimaud or Paul Meyer, among others, have performed here. They have an orchestra, 16 studios and rooms for jazz, rock and percussion, visual art, sculpture, photography, glassworks, textiles, 3D Printing, a Black Box Theatre and cooking classes. The school also encourages the practice of sports (football, golf, horseback riding, and expeditions), humanitarian and cultural trips, as well as the participation in summer camps.
