A tradition of excellence
Swiss schools are recognized for their outstanding educational standards. Synonymous with excellence and quality, these schools first gained their reputation in the 19th century when affluent parents entrusted their children to Swiss boarding schools. Over the centuries, Switzerland’s reputation for educational brilliance has grown. Switzerland’s own virtues of tradition are reflected in its school system. “The principal goal of education is to create men who are capable of doing new things, not simply repeating what other generations have done”, Piaget said.

Switzerland prides itself in being able to offer a first-class education through its pre- and post-university studies. These qualities ensure that pupils are equipped to confront the present day challenges of globalization.

Switzerland welcomes students into a multicultural environment. Each student contributes his or her own language, culture and religion into making our institution part of a “global village”. We unite all the possible elements to prepare each alumnus to become a world citizen. We hope that Globalise will help you to discover the excellence of Swiss education.
Paradise for winter sports
Sport is a fundamental part of Swiss life, both physically –as a contributor to physical health and harmony– and mentally, as a key to well-being through fair-play. High schools in Switzerland are paradise for those who love sport: a multitude of sports are offered and are practiced per day under the guidance of qualified staff.  Most Swiss high schools participate in all inter-school tournaments and most hold a highly respected winning record.

 The famous motto "mens sana in corpore sano" indicates the fundamental value of physical well-being and of intensive physical activities as the basis for a harmonious development of the whole person. Gordon Spencer, the legendary British Games Master, firmly implanted sporting values such as "how you play the game", "team spirit" and "fair play". These values still guide Swiss schools in the physical education of their students.

During the winter, traditional winter sports take place every day and are run by qualified monitors. Swiss students soon become adept at skiing, snowboarding,and ice-hockey. The range of winter sports events and school teams contribute to the exclusive image of Swiss boarding schools.
Open your mind for cultural diversity!
Switzerland is a federation of twenty-six states called cantons (six are considered half cantons). There are four linguistic regions: German-speaking (in the north, center, and east), French-speaking (in the west), Italian-speaking (in the south), and Romansh-speaking (a small area in the southeast). This diversity makes the question of a national culture a recurring issue.

The use of the German language goes back to the early Middle Ages. The dominance of German in Switzerland has been lessened by the bilingualism of the German-speaking region, where both standard German and Swiss German dialects are used. In the French-speaking region, the original Franco-Provencal dialects have almost disappeared in favor of a standard French colored by regional accents. The Italian-speaking region is bilingual, and people speak standard Italian as well as different regional dialects. Romansh, a Romance language of the Rhaetian group, is the only language specific to Switzerland except for two parent languages.

Cultural diversity makes Swiss schools truly unique.  Not only do Swiss schools students learn basic academics in their classrooms, everyone will get first hand experiences as young ambassadors and diplomats, meeting with children of different ethnic, linguistic, religious, family and cultural backgrounds. Everyone is a foreigner. No one nationality is a dominant majority. Friendship is the major currency in this universe. Fluency in more than one language after a few years in our country is highly encouraged and attainable.
