Your Second Home
The boarding staff accompanies the students in their development phases. Students can reach our team in the boarding office during the daytime, and one of the team members stays overnight at the boarding house and is reachable by phone at night.
Your room - your domain!
All rooms are single en suite with: Single bed / Table and chair / Shower / Toilet / Water / Music / Wi-Fi.
Your room is yours! You will be given your key and the freedom to make your room your own. Students are encouraged to make their room a home away from home throughout the school term, with plants, posters, and other personal belongings that make them feel comfortable. Before the summer break, students are asked to return their room to its original state, either taking home their personal belongings or leaving them with the school staff.
Our boarding school is open seven days a week and is a hive of weekend activity! In the spirit of the school community, we encourage our students to stay at school over the weekends and participate in the many exciting activities on offer or immerse themselves in the exclusivity of boarding school life!
Students can engage in a range of exciting extra-mural activities over the weekend, with both teaching and sporting staff available to assist in developing sporting, leisure or academic pursuits. Saturdays and half-day Sundays are dedicated to co-curricular events open to both boarders and students of the external school.
At the Gymnasium & Internat Kloster Disentis (GKD), the student's quality of life is highly prioritised. The alpine environment offers ideal development opportunities for sports, culture and music. Students can spend their leisure time using the boarding facilities, like indoor and outdoor playgrounds, climbing walls, cinema, gym room, billiard room, etc. A healthy work-life balance and a friendly, well-maintained network across national borders also contribute to a successful school day.
