Stiftsschule Engelberg offers a four-year and a six-year Gymnasium program, both of which culminate in a bilingual Swiss Matura certificate (German and English), and with the International Baccalaureate (IB) diploma. The Stiftsschule offers a comprehensive high-school education that prepares its students for the entrance requirements of universities both in Switzerland and abroad. It helps its students to keep all opportunities open for their later choice of study and career.
We are an IB World School. This means that Stiftsschule Engelberg, along with other IB schools across the world, is committed to a common philosophy with regard to the quality, standards and principles of international education.
In collaboration with the community of Engelberg, which supports a vocationally-oriented Secondary School on the monastery premises, students have the possibility of attending Secondary School (grades 7-9) while also profiting from the additional mentoring offered by the boarding program. Students may transfer into the short (four-year) Gymnasium program after grade 8 or 9, if their marks meet the standards.
