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.


Je suis très épanouie dans ma formation de théâtre et c'est grâce à vous que j'en suis là aujourd'hui. Je tenais à vous remercier pour cela et pour toute la confiance en moi que vous m'avez apportée. Mes années à l'Institut ont été très enrichissantes et resteront une étape très importante pour moi. Merci pour tout, je suis très reconnaissante à toute l'équipe !

Alumni: life-long friendship

With the aim to perpetuate friendship among former students, since its foundation in 1989, the Alumni Society of Institute "La Gruyère" (SAIG) organizes meetings and exchange events every year. At these occasions, former students and teachers gather for a meal and revive their common bonds. Furthermore, on every graduation day, the Alumni Society awards a price to one student of Institute "La Gruyère" who has shown particularly obliging, friendly, creative and gallant throughout the year.
