Institut auf dem Rosenberg, Switzerland has launched a Four-Week Programme to help children catch up on their studies.

On 4 July 2021, the avant-garde leading boarding school Institut auf dem Rosenberg will open its gates for the Rosenberg Summer School.

The exclusive four-week learning experience, which will take place in the picturesque campus in St Gallen, Switzerland, will be tailored to two different age groups, 6-13 years old and 14-18 years old and follows a hugely successful summer school that took place in Monaco during 2019. 

The 2021 programme includes 25 lessons per week, alongside transfers, insurance, private tuition, training sessions, course materials and books. Rosenberg has unrivalled standards in accommodation, with most rooms featuring cherry wood floors and private en-suite bathrooms.

Michelin Star trained chefs will prepare three healthy diverse meals a day throughout the summer school, whilst also catering for individual dietary requirements. With prices starting from CHF 2’460 per week, the programme is open to any child between the ages of 6 to 18 and has the option for two, three or four week stays. 

Unlike the old-fashioned preconceptions of a conventional “summer school”, Rosenberg stays true to its unorthodox approach to educating the leaders of tomorrow, and its offering couldn’t be further removed from typical summer school activities. The carefully curated and thought-provoking timetable will allow students to select a course focus, which aims to enable students to actively build skills which they will default on throughout their lifetime.

Course options include fine arts, leadership & activism, robotics & engineering and informatics & coding. Participating students will also work in teams to develop innovative and sustainable solutions in the fields of science, arts and textiles. Furthermore, students will also have the opportunity to meet leading organisations to learn about their efforts and challenges in the real working world.

A recent survey by The National Foundation for Educational Research, which questioned approximately 3,000 heads and teachers in 2,200 primary and secondary schools across England, showed how much children had fallen behind over the last school year.

Ninety-eight per cent of teachers questioned said that their pupils were behind in the curriculum compared to where they would typically expect them to be by that time of year. Overall, teachers said they had covered just 66 per cent of their usual curriculum by July, putting pupils three months behind in their learning.

As the fourth generation in his family to run Rosenberg and sitting at the helm as General Director and Headmaster, Mr Gademann spearheads the Summer School programme and comments, ‘I believe that the need for Rosenberg to host a summer school is greater than ever before, many children around the world have fallen far behind during the remote and online learning which took place throughout the year due to the pandemic.

These educational gaps could end up permanently damaging children’s social skills and academic progression. Rosenberg has considered an effective way to make up for lost time and we are delighted to be able to open the school up to non-students in order to help as many children as possible catch up on missed classes, whilst ensuring they have some much sort-after fun after a year of intermittent lockdown.
