TASIS The American School in Switzerland

Founded by M. Crist Fleming in 1956, TASIS The American School in Switzerland is a day and boarding international school committed to creating global citizens through education, travel, and service.

TASIS welcomes students from Pre-Kindergarten through Postgraduate. Approximately 750 students make up the Elementary, Middle, and High Schools each year, with around 260 students in Middle and High School residing on campus. The student body represents close to 60 nationalities each year and speaks more than 30 different languages as a mother tongue.

High School students can choose from individual Advanced Placement courses or pursue the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma, helping them receive offers from hundreds of excellent universities over the past five years. The School offers an extensive Fine Arts program that includes courses in drama, music, and the visual arts, enabling aspiring artists of any ilk to find their creative voice and nurture their talent.

Accredited by the European Council of International Schools (ECIS) and the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC), TASIS is proud to employ gifted, passionate educators who encourage intellectual curiosity. Nearly 80 percent of the High School faculty hold advanced degrees.

The campus includes more than 25 buildings dating from the 17th-century Villa De Nobili to the state-of-the-art Campo Science Center. Perched on a hillside in sunny southern Switzerland with commanding views of snow-capped mountains, palm trees, and Lake Lugano, the School’s enviable location makes possible an impressive Academic Travel program that brings students face-to-face with the rich cultural heritage of Europe and the spectacular natural beauty of the Alps and beyond.

The School’s pioneering Global Service Program transforms lives by providing every High School student with a unique opportunity to connect across borders—whether geographic, economic, or social—through comprehensive experiences that build empathy and encourage personal responsibility. The Program awakens students to humanitarian needs, inspires them to build enduring relationships, and leads them toward a life of active service and committed service.

TASIS encourages physical fitness and healthy lifestyles. Varsity sports teams compete throughout Switzerland and Europe, and a variety of other fitness activities are offered to cater to all interests. Each year also brings many opportunities to ski and explore the breathtaking Alps. Students leave TASIS with a heightened appreciation for the outdoors and an understanding of what it takes to succeed in challenging environments.

Each summer, hundreds of students aged 4½–18 journey to Lugano for the TASIS Summer Programs, which feature intensive academic courses, an unparalleled performing arts program, thrilling outdoor adventures, advanced sports training, and exciting cultural excursions around Europe.
