Families send their children to summer boarding school abroad for a wide variety of reasons, most of which we have written about on this blog. Sometimes it is to give them the opportunity to experience another country and culture. Sometimes it is with the hope that they will make connections and friends from all over the world. Sometimes it is to improve their language abilities, such as English or French at the Brillantmont Summer Course. Sometimes it’s simply to give their child a memorable, fun summer in a secure location like Switzerland.Read More

They said that this was a chance for me to see what it would be like to be away. It wasn’t easy to get used to the idea of leaving my family and friends, even if it was just for a couple of weeks.
