Institut Montana Zugerberg in response to COVID-19
Dear partners and friends of Institut Montana,

The health and safety of our students and staff members is our top priority. 
Due to the current outbreak of the COVID-19 in Europe and the increase of confirmed and suspected cases in Switzerland, the school management decided on 11 March that the Institut Montana Zugerberg would close and switch to distance learning from Monday, 16 March to 3 April 2020 (start Easter Holidays). 

As a boarding school, we have a special duty of care towards our boarding students and therefore we decided to remain the home of a few who could not return home due to the severity of the outbreak in their own countries. 

Institut Montana decided independently to close its doors before the government announced schools' obligatory closures (article in German only). It was a difficult decision but the right thing to do based on the support and feedback we received from the community.

At Home Learning, almost like at school

Institut Montana was ready within a few days to provide a completely digital parents/teachers conference and switch to e-learning for all pupils, boarders and day students; maintaining private tutorials, Goethe courses, as well as some of our extra-curricular activities which include drama, mental wealth workshops and PE. 

Admissions goes completely digital without loosing human interaction

We thank you for your understanding that no campus tours and trial days will be offered until at least Sunday, 26 April 2020.  

Our Admissions team continues to work from home.
However, we believe in the importance of human interaction, especially when it is about decisions that affect your children's education and require an emotional investment from both sides.

Therefore, we would like to maintain our communication with you as personally as possible even through this difficult situation and we have set-up a system in order to do so.

Our team is available for any further information via email, chat, calls and video calls. You can filter our team members by language (German, Russian, Spanish, Chinese, Italian etc) or by topic on our website homepage, to find your preferred contact person and choose the method of contact which you feel most comfortable with.

Academic assessments and interviews will be offered online as well as virtual campus tours upon requests. 

We would like to thank you and especially our parents, students and all our staff for your trust, understanding and support.

We are keeping those around the world who are affected in our hearts, and are listening carefully to the questions and concerns we receive from you.

Do you have any questions? Please do not hesitate to contact us.

Take care! 

Kind regards, 
Alexander Biner
