Maturité suisse - école Lémania

A touch of magic since 100 years

In 1908, Dr. Paul Du Pasquier wanted to open the doors of the university more widely. He wanted a school of the best chance. He founded the Lemania School, and gave it an original program based on four semesters of preparation. This unparalleled organization is still at the heart of our preparation for maturity.

A recipe for success

Our preparation is divided into successive semesters named classes 4,3,2,1 and CM (maturity class).

We thus allow you to approach the training from a modular angle. Your progress is evaluated every month in order to guarantee the most precise and personalized follow-up possible. This is an efficient way to prepare for the Swiss Maturity Examination in the best possible way.

Thanks to this specific study plan, different entries during the year are possible. We take into account the skills acquired in order to guarantee the obtaining of the Swiss Maturity.

Our candidates achieve excellent success scores.

Our system has two main advantages for obtaining the Swiss Maturity:

Ongoing targeted preparation: The frequent assessments required for the class examinations provide excellent training for the Swiss Maturity exams. These simulations make the preparation interactive and realistic.

A sustained work rhythm: the objective of obtaining the Swiss Maturity in 2 1/2 years stimulates the student and the semester distribution guarantees that he or she never has to repeat a full year. Students who do not manage to complete a semester module within the time limit can repeat the module in order to better master it.

Scholarships and/or loans are available for the Swiss Maturity. Contact us for more information.

Bilingual Maturité

We also offer candidates with a good level of English (B2) the possibility of taking a Swiss bilingual Maturité. This course allows for specific and in-depth knowledge of English. In addition, the possibility of writing the Swiss Maturité essay in English is also an enriching choice.

The characteristics of the bilingual Swiss Maturité: history, geography and complementary option in English. Bilingual candidates also have the possibility to write their Maturité essay in English.

The organization: Students in the bilingual option follow a common core of all the subjects of the Swiss Maturité, with the exception of history and geography in the first part, and the complementary option in the second part.

The bilingual Swiss Maturité is becoming increasingly popular, as many universities offer courses in English during their curriculum.
