Entry evaluation for students

Our assessments are designed to be part of an ongoing conversation - ensuring that the student is well suited for the challenges Aiglon has to offer, and that Aiglon is the best environment to nurture their talents in return. Our assessments take two forms: Assessment Interview and Abilities Assessment.

Brief description of entry evaluation required

Assessment Interview
The interview-based assessment is a discussion between the family and our Director of Admissions & Marketing and Head of School. This is an opportunity for both student and family to begin to make a deeper connection with Aiglon and engage in an interesting and stimulating discussion.

Abilities Assessment
We are not only looking for students who achieve high scores. Rather, these exams help us to understand where a student’s strengths lie and also identify areas where they may need additional guidance – perhaps even areas we can suggest they would benefit from preparation prior to joining Aiglon. These tests are an honest reflection of suitability, academic ability, and areas for potential growth.

Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

Education should be a way of life. School should be about the development of the whole person. When John Corlette founded Aiglon College in 1949, he had a unique vision: to combine the special character of mountain life with a new vision for education. Aiglon today guards this original vision and has grown into one of the world’s most distinctive boarding schools.

Teaching approach of the school

Spirited, independent and a not-for-profit organisation, Aiglon’s aim toward the balanced development of mind, body and spirit works to create a principle-driven environment where students and teachers alike are encouraged toward academic excellence, pursuit of physical challenge and the learning born through a deeply international culture.
