School at ICEF - Behind the scenes with ICEF’s Education Manager
Although football is the priority for all, we place a strong emphasis on academic performance as well, and strive to create the ideal balance between football training and competition, academics, and boarding life through complete immersion in a professional environment, the key to success on and off the field.

Academic Options at ICEF
At ICEF our student-athletes come from diverse academic backgrounds and are at different stages in their journeys. We want to make sure that each student-athlete, no matter their end goal, age, primary language or grade level, can get the optimal academic preparation to fit their individual needs.
ICEF benefits from strong partnerships with several educational institutions, to offer student-athletes a wide range of academic options from Middle and High School to Undergraduate and Graduate degrees. A large array of degree programs are available to student-athletes, to best fit the needs of each unique profile.
ICEF offers education programs in English through partnerships with prestigious institutions, like Webster University Geneva as well as Geneva Business School for Undergraduate and Graduate programs. French speakers in Middle and High School can also choose to enroll in a French program to pursue their academic preparation.
These wide range of options enable ICEF to support each student-athlete, meeting individual and specific needs, no matter where they come from or what stage they are in.
In-person Academic Support and Progress Monitoring
ICEF student-athletes benefit from easy access to in-person and online tutoring options provided at ICEF.
“My role is to coordinate the success of our student-athletes in their academic programs.”
Academic performance is closely monitored by both Adam Amellal, Education Manager, and Leandro Cruz, Academic Performance Supervisor, who work closely with ICEF’s educational partners (American High School, Cambridge International Education Program, Webster University Geneva, and Geneva Business School) to ensure student’s progress is on track.
In the same way, ICEF’s Education team communicates closely with Julien Bernard, Head Coach, and his Technical Team, in order to properly adapt each student-athlete’s schedule on a need basis, to meet all needs on and off the field.
