Through this, we drive our mission, which is to educate students to be global citizens with the courage and capacity to create a just and joyful tomorrow together. Ecolint is built on strong humanitarian values and prides itself on its long history of pedagogical innovation, including the creation of the Model United Nations system and the International Baccalaureate.

We are proud to be an International Baccalaureate World School while also offering our students the option to complete the Swiss Maturité. Our programmes are based on the IB’s ‘Learner Profile’, a set of ideals that inspire, motivate and focus the work of the school and help students to become more thoughtful, grounded, responsible and caring global citizens. Fostering these qualities is at the heart of all we do.  The international team of educators is devoted to supporting and celebrating a diverse population of students.
