Olga Theofanidis's interview


Children who complete their secondary education at Lemania College Secondary School gain a secondary education certificate, giving them the knowledge they need to pursue apprenticeship schemes or further academic study. Pupils who wish to continue studying have a number of attractive options:

  • The Swiss Maturité qualification, which opens the door to university study and can be completed in between four and six semesters.
  • The French Baccalaureate which takes between two and three years to complete, depending on ability.
  • The Federal Vocational Education and Training Diploma in Commerce
  • We also offer students a chance to study for a commerce diploma, with two separate qualifications available:
  • The Lemania College Commerce Diploma (1 year)
  • The Groupement Suisse des Ecoles de Commerce (GEC) Diploma (2 years)

We offer a pre-apprenticeship course at the end of secondary school, helping students looking to pursue a vocational pathway get a taste of the professional world.

Lemania's promise


Our ambition is not only to ensure the student’s success in the exam, but also to provide him/her with the skills and work methods that will help him/her throughout his/her studies.


For many years, Lemania School has been able to rely on a dedicated teaching team that is strongly involved in the success of their students.


We are committed to maintaining a constructive dialogue with parents and students. This is how our approach becomes proactive.


We set up clear rules and a continuous pedagogical follow-up thanks to online information in real time. We want all the steps proposed to the students to be easily identifiable and understandable.


Our goal is to ensure that the time spent at school is profitable. This is why we consider after-school care particularly important: supervised studies and individualized coaching are part of our school’s offer.
