ABOUT US

ISBerne Online is a premium American Online School for students in Kindergarten to Grade 12. ISBerne Online was established as a sister school to the International School of Berne (ISBerne) in Switzerland, with over 50 years of experience delivering high-quality Swiss international education.

ISBerne Online offers an American Online Curriculum from Kindergarten to Grade 12 and is part of the Pansophic Learning group.

We are NEASC (New England Association of Schools and Colleges) accredited, and provide NCAA eligible courses.

Our teacher-supported classes provide students with a world-class learning experience that will help students reach their full potential as they prepare for university and beyond.

We offer an American High School Diploma with options to take Advanced Placement (AP) courses. Our courses are powered by Accel Management Platform (AMP) for Education.

WHY STUDY WITH US

ISBerne Online offers High School students a wide variety of teacher-supported courses specifically designed for the summer months. These are the same quality courses offered during the school year, but each course has been condensed to four weeks (20 instructional days) for the summer. Students are expected to commit 4–5 hours a day for each summer course. Summer school at ISBerne Online offers students the opportunity to catch up, get ahead, and even try new electives so that they can start.
ISBerne Online believes that all students should receive an education appropriate to their ability, needs and interests. Our flexible programs are tailored to support individual self-paced, structured learning. Students can attend the graduation ceremony at the ISBerne campus in Switzerland and have other opportunities for campus-based activities throughout the year:

Study online from home or anywhere in the world.

Receive an American High School Diploma from a high-quality, fully accredited program.

Unique options for campus involvement at the International School of Berne.

Advanced courses to better prepare for university.

STUDY ABROAD PROGRAM & CAMPUS ACTIVITIES

ISBerne Online is connected to the campus community of ISBerne in Switzerland – a brick and mortar school with a full international school program of academics, after-school activities and sports, cultural excursions and a diverse community representing 50 countries.

ISBerne makes it possible for ISBO students to include a Study Abroad experience in Switzerland. Students can enroll in traditional classes on-campus for either a semester or full-year. The home stay is arranged by a third party, International Experience and students are placed with either an ISBerne family or a local swiss family. IE handles all of the logistics in the swiss residency process.

Study Abroad fees are an extra cost, not included in ISBerne Online tuition.
