This deposit will be fully reimbursed at the end of the student’s school duration when the account has been fully settled. At the end of each term, the school will send to the parents or guardians the statement of the extra costs that will need to be paid in full within 30 days.



If siblings are enrolled as boarders during the same academic year only, the following discount will be applied to the school fees (only): 10% for the second child, 15% for the third child, 20% for the fourth and any additional children. 



If you wish to discuss the benefits of paying annual fees in advance, please enquire by email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.



If a student is expelled or withdrawn during the academic year, the fees for both the current term and the following term are due to the school. No deductions will be applied for late arrival or a prolonged absence. Parents can consider having their own insurance to cover these cases.



For all new students, cancellation made less than 90 days prior to the confirmed start date, will incur a cancellation fee of CHF 40’000. This does not apply for current students, for current students please refer to re-enrolment paragraph below.



No refund will be given for a change of status from a "boarding" to "day student" during the course of the academic year.



In case of late payment of invoice, the School reserves the right to charge the interest in the rate of 1% per month. When fees are unpaid, the student may not be allowed to return to the School until the outstanding balance has been paid.



The re-enrolment deadline for the following academic year is 31st of March. If parents decide against re-enrolling their child/children at La Garenne International School for the following academic year, they are required to email Admissions (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) before the 31st of March. The school can only guarantee a place for the returning student if the first invoice (2 full Terms fees) is paid within 30 days. If a cancellation is made after 31st of March, 50% of the first invoice will be charged.



According to Swiss Law each student must have insurance covering illness and accidents. For those students who already have Swiss medical insurance, an insurance certificate and insurance card must be provided to the school. Any fees associated with medication will be charged to the students.



Please be advised, the school reserves the right to amend financial conditions annually. School regulations may change during the school year. In case of litigation between the school and parents, Swiss legislation is the only law applicable in all matters concerning this contract.

  • Boarding students with European nationalities do not require a Student Visa to enter Switzerland

Boarding students holding a European passport or any citizenship not requiring a Student Visa to enter Switzerland (e.g. Japanese) need only to apply for a Swiss Student permit. The school will gather the necessary documents at the start of the school year, or when the child is physically present at school. Parents will not need to take any action, as it is the responsibility of the school to declare these students to the local authorities.


  • Boarding students with NON-European nationalities require a Student Visa to enter Switzerland

Boarding students with non-European nationalities must have a visa to enter Switzerland. An application for a Swiss Student Visa (not a Tourist Visa) should be made at least 6-8 weeks prior to their arrival at school. The school will help the family gather all the necessary documents required by the Swiss authorities in their country of origin or residency. Parents are strongly advised to follow the school guidelines, to avoid delays in the procedure - which may lead to authorisation not arriving in time. Once the visa is obtained, and after the child has arrived at school, our office will apply for the Swiss Student permit. Parents do not need to take any further action at that stage, as it is the responsibility of the school to declare these students to the local authorities.


  • "Schengen Zone" - Validity of the Swiss Student Permit

The Swiss Student permit allows travel in any part of the Schengen Zone. Nevertheless, parents remain responsible for undertaking all the necessary procedures to acquire visas if their child is travelling outside the Schengen Zone.
