Mountain Climbers

Set in the Swiss Alps, the Ecole d’Humanité International Boarding School offers an education that incorporates outside pursuits into the curriculum. School Director, Katja Braun talks to Katie Lewin about the school’s unique approach to a first class education.

Our school is renowned for its green and creative approach to education: “When I look out of my window and see the glacier on the Wetterhorn, I know that I’m in the right place. The pupils here exude independence, free thinking and happiness.” explains School Director Katja Braun.

With regular high alpine hikes, at all levels, Ecole d’Humanité pupils will find themselves climbing their own personal mountains and participating in the beautiful Berner Oberland. Actions speak louder than words. Learning through experience is at the heart of the school’s philosophy. Test your boundaries and discover yourself.

The gusto with which the school sings speaks volumes, and has to be heard to be believed. New pupils are quickly integrated, dancing traditional dances from simply everywhere. It is after all, the school for humanity. With over twenty different nationalities, the Ecole is really a place for polyglots. The school’s history has always been one of internationality, tolerance, and openness.

Nestled in the High Swiss Alps, between Lucerne and Interlaken, the Ecole d’Humanité is a rather different place. No uniforms, no airs and graces, with a heart that beats to music and dance, fueled by home grown vegetables and goat’s cheese. The pupils live in small chalets that form a village.

Adds Katja: “It’s hard growing up today for young people; they need vision and the skills to change things. Whilst the Ecole does not pretend to have all the answers, we have some of them, and equip our pupils to challenge others and not be afraid to say what they think.” The Ecole d’Humanité follows the US High School Curriculum AP International Diploma, Swiss Matura, Education and Career Guidance.
