Giving Opportunities

The unique educational experience available at Aiglon, made possible by our low student-teacher ratio, state-of-the art facilities, outstanding instruction, and exceptional Alpine campus, does not come without cost. To provide this extraordinary learning environment, it is necessary to charge substantial tuition and fees.

To prevent those costs from being an insurmountable obstacle for some deserving children, the school offers tuition assistance to a number of families who qualify, thanks in part to the generosity of alumni and friends. In addition, the school relies on the generosity of donors to help fund its ongoing building and renovation campaigns.

With your endowed or designated gift we can continue to go from strength to strength and, at the same time, make it possible for parents who embrace our core principles to send their children to school on our Mountain.

* All fundraising activity for Aiglon College is coordinated by the school's development office in Switzerland. FOAC, Inc. (U.S.) exists to facilitate donations by American taxpayers, allowing them to take advantage of the charitable-giving tax deductions allowed under U.S. law. It also helps support various activities in the United States for alumni, students, parents, and other friends of the school.
