Founded in 1924, the Foundation of the International School of Geneva, commonly known as Ecolint, educates 4,500 students aged 3 to 18, representing more than 130 nationalities. Each of our eight schools is dedicated to the development of seven global competences, which prepare students for the future: we develop lifelong learning, autonomy, the ability to interact with the world and with others in harmony with available resources, in order to develop transdisciplinary and multilingual thinking. In this way, we carry out our mission, which is to educate students to be citizens of the world with the ability and courage to create together a just and joyful tomorrow. Ecolint is founded on strong humanitarian values and is proud of its long history of educational innovation, including the creation of the United Nations system model and the International Baccalaureate. We have around 1,250 employees representing more than 60 nationalities, united in a single core of dynamic professionals committed to our mission.

The La Grande Boissière (LGB) campus is located in the centre of Geneva and blends a mixture of 18th century buildings with state-of-the-art STEM and arts facilities. The bilingual (French and English) campus is home to around 1900 primary, middle and secondary school students. Our unique Universal Learning Programme, designed in conjunction with UNESCO's International Bureau of Education, aims to ground learning in a deep conceptual understanding and assessment of Ecolint's Global Competencies to ensure that learning outcomes have a positive social impact.
