Welcome to

Institute La Gruyère

Learn more about our school, located in Switzerland in an exceptional landscape setting. Since 1949, thousands of young girls and boys have here, in a human-friendly environment, thrived on by acquiring knowledge, know-how and education.

Boarding school as well as external students benefit from small classes and personalized support, as all students are backed and encouraged by highly motivated and experienced teachers.

We run a Secondary School I (as defined by the Swiss Conference for Public Education), the bilingual 3-year Matura program (aiming for the Swiss high-school exit exam), the French Baccalaureat, a full-immersion French language course, an intensive English course and a summer course during the month of July.

In the middle school, we are introducing a bilingual section (French/English) and in the secondary school, an international section that will prepare our students for the IB Diploma (in the accreditation phase).

Every day, Institute "La Gruyère" students have the possibility to do different sports and to join clubs that cultivate their talent. A supervising tutor or teacher is always available and lends support.

Thanks to the quality of our teaching, we are among the top ranking private schools in Switzerland. After more than 70 years of existence, we have been able to enrich our educational offering.


I am fully satisfied with my Theater training and it is thanks to you that I am here today. I wanted to thank you for that and for all the self-confidence that you brought me. My years at the Institute were very rewarding and will remain a very important step for me. Thank you for everything, I am very grateful to the whole team!
