Academic excellence

Built on over a century of experience, Institut Florimont offers the best of the Swiss, French and international education systems to all students.

With its unique blend of tradition and modernity, the Institut provides educational excellence in STEAM subjects (science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics) and is dedicated to developing personal skills through collective community activities. Florimont has formed many cultural and sporting partnerships with local organisations, placing great importance on developing artistic and physical skills.

Florimont offers French/English bilingual teaching from Maternelle (kindergarten), with students choosing between different programmes when they enter Secondaire 2 (Diplomas): French Baccalauréat, International Baccalaureate and Swiss Maturité (both with bilingual French-English option).

Florimont consistently produces outstanding examination pass rates, opening the doors to the top schools and universities.
