About us


Founded as a joint stock company in 2005, academia is active in the following educational areas:

Provision of international schooling (academia International School)
Teaching languages (academia Language Centres)
Tutoring for children and young persons (academia learning)

academia Language Centres offer instruction in all languages – for children and adults, for beginners and advanced learners, or for private individuals and companies. Lessons are provided on an individual basis or for small groups, in daytime or evening courses, at our school or on your business premises. academia Language Centres are primarily aimed at participants who are accustomed to receive training, with business clients making up about 80% of our course attendants.

academia learning offers tutoring at all school levels and in all school subjects. Rather than focusing only on what has to be learnt, tutoring takes into account the way each child learns and the special study requirements of adolescents. Our tuition aims to achieve compatibility of students with the requirements of regular teaching environments. We provide courses that prepare for examinations, private tuition, intensive vacation courses and individual full-day solutions as alternatives to state school attendance.

academia International School offers full-day international schooling in Basel – from preschool to qualification for university entrance.

Over 500 employees work at academia schools in locations all over Switzerland including Basel, Zurich, Bern, Lucerne, Visp, Caslano, Lausanne, Sissach, Zug and Reinach BL.
