The Collège and Lycée at Saint-Charles is an ideal blend of historical tradition and time-honored educational best practices mixed with modern innovation that every student needs to thrive. Located in the beautiful town of Porrentruy, Switzerland, the school is situated in the heart of Europe providing a safe, small town feel with easy access to the riches of the Jura area. Saint-Charles welcomes students ages 8-20 into classes of 12 on average. This provides students the individualized attention to reach their full potential under the guidance of teachers who know them personally to care for their social and emotional wellbeing in addition to their academic achievement.

Our bright modern classrooms allow students to access technology to become citizens of tomorrow: connected, informed and adaptable. Students join Saint Charles as private day school students, or as seven-day boarding students housed in our state of the art, comfortable accommodations. Students have the opportunity to participate in on-campus extracurricular activities such as chorus, visual arts, archery, basketball, and swimming or off-campus activities such as skiing, horseback riding, golf, and tennis lessons. Our boarding school students benefit from the caring familial supervision of our staff who ensures their weekends and evenings are a great balance of relaxation and activity.

Saint-Charles follows the Swiss national curriculum for students in Primary and Secondary school and for our High School offers both a Swiss Maturite (French/Bilingual French English) or an IB pathway through our International Baccalaureate Curriculum. Our motto is “Accompagner pour grandir/Supporting Growth” which is both our honor and challenge for each and every student who enters our classrooms.
