Lemania College, a bastion of education in the center of Lausanne, attended by both Swiss and foreign students from all walks of life, is proud to be recognised for its dependability and the quality of its teaching. It has managed to combine development and modernity with discretion and effectiveness. Students with widely diversified objectives have come here to acquire knowledge, to shape their future, to pass examinations and to blaze the trail to their future careers.
Lemania, one of the principal private schools in Switzerland, was founded in 1908 by Dr. Paul Du Pasquier, a gifted and visionary graduate of the elite universities. It has so far educated over 60,000 pupils in its various sections and also takes boarders. It initially concentrated on obtaining the Swiss secondary- school leaving certificate or maturité, then, in 1928, the school services developed to in-clude a commercial section. Subsequently, secondary studies, pre-maturité, the baccalaureate, the entrance examination to the Federal Institute of Advanced Technology (EPF), commercial and man-agement studies, language courses, Summer and evening courses (i.e. continuous training) were gradually added
In 1958, Dr. Paul Du Pasquier handed over to his two sons. After 50 years of commitment to his pu-pils, always supported by his wife who looked after the smooth running of the boarding school, he was succeeded by Jean and Eric who were to continue the work of their father in meeting the requirements and constantly improving the standard of the establishment’s demands and services. In 1974, they built a second building.
Since 1986, Jean-Pierre Du Pasquier has been running the establishment with a sound management team. He has opted to open up to the outside world. He enhanced the existing offer by opening new schools and offering new courses, thus covering a broad range of education from primary studies to University. The Lemania Group today comprises 12 schools scattered around French-speaking Swit-zerland. More than 5000 students attend its establishments annually.
Lemania College is celebrating its centenary in 2008. This centenary will be marked by various events throughout 2008. The highlights will be an Evening Reunion which will take place in Lausanne on Friday 24 October and an Open Day on Saturday 25 October.
