One of the World’s Most Distinctive International Boarding Schools

Thank you for your interest in employment at Aiglon College, located in the Swiss Alps.

With a natural setting of outstanding beauty, a diverse and dynamic student body, a highly experienced and motivated staff team and our rigorous and broad curriculum; Aiglon has a global reputation for excellence in education.

Aiglon College is a renowned, non-profit independent boarding school located high in the Swiss Alps, in the village of Chesières-Villars.

When John Corlette founded our school in 1949, he knew that the balanced development of mind, body and spirit would require unique ingredients. A strong and abiding family spirit. Inspirational and outstanding educators. A truly diverse student body. A unique location. And the spirited independence that comes with being a non-profit school. And that is why at Aiglon, we live life on the mountain – it is our home, our classroom and our way of life.
