International boarding school for girls in Switzerland – Surval Montreux
Surval Montreux is a small international boarding school for girls between the ages of 13 and 19 offering internationally recognised academic programmes and a personalised curriculum tailored to the individual.
Through choosing from two different progression routes – American High School or IGCSE and A Levels – girls will gain access to top universities across the world. The school also offers a pre-University year for girls 17+ who would like an international year of language, culture and travel before embarking on their higher education.
An integral element of the education offered at Surval is the Expanding Horizons Programme, where girls take part in a wide range of activities, clubs and charity work to complement their academic learning. Field trips and excursions abroad are organised frequently for a deeper cultural understanding and to encourage girls to be open-minded and tolerant towards new cultures.
The school’s international flair and sense of community is also a great asset as it creates the perfect environment for girls to develop and grow intellectually, personally and spiritually, and to become leaders. Surval is a small community, where all girls live together happily in a friendly environment, as they gain their first taste of adulthood and live independently in rooms shared between two or three girls.
As a result of living and learning in an international setting, Surval girls develop into independent young women who truly understand the value and importance of the beliefs, customs and traditions of others. They will be girls who will bring their intelligence, their understanding, and their sense of social responsibility to the service of the communities in which they will live.
