Why a Swiss boarding school education is like no other

| 0 comments| by Sarah Frei Sarah Frei

Switzerland is well-known for many things – mountains, skiing, amazing scenery, watches and of course chocolate! Yet, there is one domain, known to an exclusive elite - boarding schools.

Founded decades ago, they are considered among the best in the world and offer an internationally recognised education, which opens doors worldwide. Switzerland has a long history of hosting students from all over the world in its exceptional private boarding schools. The multicultural landscape, with four official languages - French, German, Italian and Romansch – is conducive to an international community, in which students can live and breathe intercultural understanding on a daily basis. The safety and security, the discretion and the very exclusiveness are all factors which appeal to those families who seek something unique for their child. Switzerland is an amazing place to live and learn.

The G7 discussions are over, but the problems and questions discussed by world leaders about the kind of world future generations will inherit remain.

When it comes to British A Levels in the Lake Geneva area, trust the experts!

| 0 comments| by Sarah Frei Sarah Frei

Brillantmont is one of the only schools in the Lake Geneva area which teaches British A Levels. We are not the new kids on the block! Established in Switzerland in 1882, we have decades of experience in preparing our students for A Level success. Out of all the programmes offered for the 16-18 year old age group, we believe that A Levels is simply the best in terms of how it prepares students for the rigours of university study.

 

"Students who have taken Cambridge international A Levels are very well prepared for our curriculum and we find that they have a lot of confidence, but also that they have a good, deep subject knowledge."
- Stuart Schmill, Dean of Admissions, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)

 

Enjoy this film in which Mr McClean, our Head of Academics, explains why we believe that A Levels are a fantastic key to opening many doors.

What are the advantages of a small international boarding school?

| 0 comments| by Sarah Baker Sarah Baker

Choosing a school for your child is one of the most important decisions you make as a parent. One of the common anxieties for you as a parent is the transition, the wellbeing, and the academic performances of your child. I totally agree. I changed school when I was going to high school, and there were many questions in my head and my parents' heads when I wanted to change into a small international boarding school. I came from a large school and I was always scared to speak up or do anything in public. That is why for high school I decided to choose a small Swiss boarding school.

What is the difference between the British A Levels and the American High School Diploma?

| 0 comments| by Sarah Baker Sarah Baker

British A Levels are internationally recognised examinations - they are the national qualifications of the UK. They are taken by over 175 000 students in over 125 countries and are one of the oldest qualifications around, in existence for nearly 70 years. At Brillantmont we work with  Cambridge International Assessment. International agreements between countries consider the Cambridge International A/AS Levels as almost a world passport to higher education since they are accepted as entry qualifications to universities everywhere.

Most higher education institutions require a minimum of 3 subjects, sometimes with specific grades, though some will use a tariff system.
