Promotion économique de la République et Canton du Jura


in the classroom

For a family, being able to take advantage of a quality education system is indispensable. The standards of Swiss public education are among the highest in the world. This is also true in the canton of Jura, where you will find a modern and progressive school system starting from the nursery level.

Children of German-speaking families that have settled in the Jura can follow a bilingual school programme. This class (’Ich studiere im Jura’) opened for the first time at the beginning of the 2009-10 school year in Delémont, and welcomes 1st and 2nd-year pupils.

The Sport-Arts-Studies programme allows secondary school students who demonstrate particular talents in sport or the arts to combine their academic studies with the development of their talent.

Porrentruy, the canton's student town, is home to three private schools, the Collège Saint-Charles,  the St-Paul School and the St-Ursula School.
