Our School

The Lyceum Alpinum Zuoz, founded in 1904, is a Swiss international boarding school set in spectacular alpine landscape near St. Moritz, Switzerland. The Lyceum campus occupies an extensive site with its own sports fields overlooking the alpine village of Zuoz.

Spirit of Zuoz

In 2004 the school celebrated its 100th jubilee. Our school philosophy is founded on respect for tradition combined with innovativeness. It finds expression in the Spirit of Zuoz, which attaches supreme importance to tolerance, mutual respect, fair play, commitment and life-long learning. Respectability and orderliness in everyday life, respect and helpfulness towards others coupled with an open-minded attitude: these are the guiding principles of an education at the Lyceum Alpinum Zuoz, and they equip ambitious and enthusiastic young people with the qualities they need for life.
