(New X-Men I#138 (fb) - BTS) - Madame LaFarge ran an Academy in Switzerland where she worked with (presumably not limited to) telepaths.
(New X-Men I#138 - BTS) - Across the Atlantic Ocean in the United States, the four sisters of the Stepford Cuckoos decided to go to Switzerland to work with Madame LaFarge to restore their telepathic talents. The sisters had just lost their sister Sophie when she died of an overdose of the power-enhancing drug Kick and decided to leave their teacher Emma Frost and the Xavier Institute. Hearing the news, Frost was devastated her prize-students would go for a woman with hair on the back of her hand.
Comments: Created by Grant Morrison (writer).
In the end the Stepford Cuckoos didn't leave for Switzerland as Esme had joined "Magneto's" (Kuan-Yin Xorn) Brotherhood of Evil Mutants and helped to seemingly assassinate Frost (she survived of course).
Madame LaFarge, of course has never been seen on panel. Any information on her and the academy in Switzerland would be purely speculative. Nonetheless it would be interesting and fun to revisit the idea and see what kind of academy she is running with either human or superhuman/mutant teaching staff and students... How about Neophyte teaching mutant history, reformed Dr. Walston Kraft teaching chemistry, guidance counselor Ursula and combat training by Captain Switzerland and White Cross. I could already picture the limited series now...
