Swiss Gymnasium - Abbey School Engelberg
Stiftsschule Engelberg offers a four-year and a six-year Gymnasium (middle and high school) program, both of which culminate in a bilingual (German, English) Swiss Matura certificate, 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 at home 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 the 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.
The IB subjects offered by the Stiftsschule Engelberg are integrated into the curriculum of our bilingual Matura.
The syllabi in the subjects that are part of both the IB and Matura curricula are designed so that the requirements of both the IB and the federally recognized Swiss Matura are fulfilled simultaneously.
At the end of grade 12, students are well-prepared for the IB and Matura graduation examinations. Exams for the six IB subjects take place in May, and the exams for the Swiss Matura are taken in June.
Listed below left are the subjects of the Upper Gymnasium. The corresponding IB subjects and core components appear on the right.
