Well, I wonder if and when she goes to Switzerland where she'll go. She might go to Le Rosey when she's a bit older... I think girls can go there.

Yes, Guillaume at least went to Le Rosey - I'm not sure about Felix but he probably did... :)

Institute Le Rosey

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.


Institut Le Rosey, established in 1880, is the oldest private school in Switzerland and one of the most exclusive private education institutions in the world. It offers studies in either French or English to the students (ages 9 through 18) who come from some of the world's wealthiest families in dozens of different countries. Attendees of this school generally guard their privacy.

Le Rosey runs two campuses. In spring and autumn, classes are held in the at the Château du Rosey facilities near the village of Rolle in the Vaud canton, located between Lausanne and Geneva. For the winter term, the entire student body moves to Chalet Rex, Gstaad in the Bern canton, home to the world's most elite ski resort and where skiing is part of the school's curriculum.

The annual boarding and academic fees are CHF 71.700 (around USD 57.000 at a 0.8 exchange rate) and other services charged separately add up to around CHF 15.000.

Despite its relatively small student body, Le Rosey offers instruction in more than a dozen languages, with many students studying four different languages.

Invaluable to the students is a very high-quality education with an International Baccalaureate. However, as adults, having a worldwide network of former classmates at the highest levels of industry or government, can be priceless.

Some of Le Rosey's students, whose attendance is a matter of public record, are:

the school's official site...

A teacher-pupil ratio of 1: 6 and an average of one staff-member for every three students!!! OMG this totally kills public schools >__< hahaha

OH MY GOD! I couldn't even get an accounting teacher in my final year of school (even though I went to a private school... albeit a dodgy private school :p). Wow! Is Le Rosey the school that has two different locations depending on whether it's winter or summer? Actually I guess I should go check the website myself... thanks, hillary!

Wow! Lots of big names went there. I had no idea Sean Lennon went there. Imagine the class reunion... Alexandra, other royals and Sean Lennon and the Strokes to provide the music. That would be good times!

Yeah, a reunion from that school would be great - musicians, royalty, rich heirs/heiresses - you wouldn't know who to talk to first! If I ever have kids I'd like to send them to Le Rosey (hehehe!). I wonder how frightening the school fees are though? I shudder to think!

AAAARRGHH! That's like 50 million billion Australian dollars... I wonder if anyone's had to sell a kidney to send their children there?

That's definitely more than a kidney. Perhaps an arm and both legs also.

The school is really good for privacy and security i guess the rich are willing to pay anything to prevent their children from the media and paparazzi and kidnappings...

If you think about it, $30,000 per year isn't that much for a private school. I went to a private school (I don't even want to mention the fees) and people were willing to pay the money because, as my parents said, they wanted their kids to have a good education. I think that's what's happening at Le Rosey; everyone's seen the graduates, who wouldn't want their child to be one of those names mentioned? And as Hillary said, the security and privacy would be guaranteed. A perfect place to send the world's future leaders, diplomats and musicians. :p

Look, Hillary - it's the tiny couch! Sorry, I'm just being silly. But I guess Alexandra doesn't look huge compared to the couch unlike her brothers!

Please get back on topic!

This thread is about News and Pictures of Princess Alexandra. And I do not see a connection between tuition rates at your own personal private school versus other private schools has to do with Princess Alexandra.

If you would like to continue such a discussion, then please do so via PM or e-mail with each other. This is not the place for it.

For the official portrait for her 18th birthday, I wonder whether she will wear a fabulous dress and a sparkling tiara! Still, we've got a few years to wait for that! :)
