Our 1,250 staff from all over the world work on our three campuses (La Grande Boissière and Campus des Nations in Geneva, La Châtaigneraie in the canton of Vaud).

In our 7 schools, our students benefit from international teaching and bilingual supervision of the highest quality.

To fulfil our mission of "Educating students to be global citizens with the courage and capacity to create a just and joyful tomorrow together", every member of staff can draw inspiration from our hundred years of experience, our constant drive to innovate, and our strong humanitarian values. Through our Ecolint Institute, we are committed to provide our staff with excellent professional development opportunities.

The La Grande Boissière (LGB) campus is located in the center of Geneva and mixes a mix of 18th century buildings with cutting-edge STEM and arts facilities. The bilingual campus (French and English) welcomes nearly 1,900 students from primary, middle and secondary schools. Our unique Universal Learning program, designed jointly with UNESCO's International Bureau of Education, aims to anchor learning in deep conceptual understanding and assessment of Ecolint's global skills, to ensure that students learning outcomes have a positive social impact.
