With an International Baccalaureate Diploma Program and more than 15 Advanced Placement courses, our academic program is designed to challenge all students. TASIS students have consistently outperformed their peers in their pursuit of the IB Diploma, which opens doors to outstanding universities around the world.

2009, M. Crist Fleming cited TASIS as the fulfillment of her dreams and encouraged students to follow their own—to dream big enough and bold enough to lead a life of consequence and make the world “a better place in small and large ways for all the humans who inhabit it.”

Switzerland with commanding views of snow-capped mountains, palm trees, and Lake Lugano, our global village comprises 25 buildings dating from the 17th-century Villa De Nobili to the Campo Science Center, completed in 2014.
