School Dates

Our school year is divided into two semesters, beginning late August and ending in June. Many students remain on the Zugerberg over weekends. They are welcome to stay over the shorter one-week breaks, during which our activities team organises a host of exciting activities. The school is closed for students over the Christmas, Easter and Summer holidays.

The first semester begins at the end of August. All boarding students are welcomed over the weekend before the beginning of school. During the mid-October one-week break students go home or stay at Institut Montana, enjoying a varied trips and activities programme. Our three-week Christmas break is held over the holiday period.

The second semester begins at the end of January and is interrupted by a one-week Sports Break in February, during which students are welcome to join the traditional and very popular Institut Montana St. Moritz Ski-Trip.  Over the Easter period we break for a three-week Easter Holiday. The school year ends with the beginning of the eight-week summer holidays in June.
