Praise & Theology

What and why?

Students will be trained in both instrumental and musical skills. As a musician, you will be able to exercise your leadership as a worship pastor or in various creative projects in the church or outside.

Is it for me?

Are you passionate about worship? Do you have a heart of worship? Do you like challenges?
Do you want to deepen your understanding of the Bible?
Do you want to get out of your comfort zone? Are you ready to discover the gifts of the Spirit, especially the gift of prophecy? If you answer yes to at least one of these questions, then then this is definitely the school for you.

To enroll for the BA or Certificate in Praise & Theology, you need a basic education of twelve years (e.g. a vocational apprenticeship CFC or Maturité or equivalent, BAC, BTS or equivalent). You are involved in a church or Christian organization and a referring spiritual authority supports your decision for theological education. You are eager to learn, a team player, resilient and disciplined. We would like to draw your attention to the leader camp which is compulsory for all students, before or after the beginning of classes.


This curriculum leads either to a Bachelor of Praise & Theology in Praise & Leadership (BA TLL) from Adéléa Academy, or to a Bachelor of Praise & Theology in Ministries & Implementation (BA TMI). The course is available from the start of the 2023-2024 academic year. It lasts 6 semesters and comprises 180 credits based on the ECTS system, a third of which is spent on practical training in a local church. AA is based on the European Bologna standard and affiliated with ISTL.

Each year of full-time study earns a Certificate of Completion for 60 annual credits.


The tuition fee for BA and Certificate students is CHF 395 / EUR 225 per month (10x/year). The seventh semester lasts 6 months. Fees apply to all students studying in Switzerland (prices in Euro apply to students residing in the EU).

We believe in a formation that fully involves the local church. The tuition fees of CHF 595.00 / EUR 425.00 gross will be reduced by a minimum of CHF 200.00 from the student’s assigned church.

Our school’s vision regarding finances is to promote student integration. We do not want finances to be a barrier to study. If you feel the call and resonance in your heart for our school, we offer you a financial aid adapted to your needs and abilities. Contact us to establish a support plan together.

Personal expenses

The expenses for literature and school materials are individual. The proposed study or mission trips are optional. Twice a year, an extended external study weekend is held.


Adelea Academy works in partnership with the association LUMEN HOME, which facilitates the accommodation of our future students. The proposed accommodation is a shared apartment in the center of Geneva, 5 minutes from the train station, from 350.00/month and a single room from 750.00/month.

Financial support

We encourage students to find supporters in the local church to contribute to the cost of tuition for a flat monthly fee or a one-time annual donation. We suggest a minimum participation of 50% of the tuition fees.
