TASIS prepares high school students for university and life beyond with a challenging academic program that includes Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate courses and academic and service travel. Our students gain admission to and succeed in competitive colleges and universities around the world.
Our founder, M. Crist Fleming, believed that engagement with other cultures completes an academic education, an idea that TASIS continues to emphasize. The School's enviable location in southern Switzerland and at the crossroads of the Italian, German, and French-speaking worlds creates exceptional opportunities for travel and engagement with other cultures.
The High School is predominantly a boarding community and each year consists of students from approximately 60 countries who speak more than 30 languages as a mother tongue. This diverse global community fosters understanding and builds friendships with people from all over the world. For more than 60 years, TASIS graduates have found their TASIS experience among the most important in their lives.
