Education continues to play a vital role in the life and future success of every young person. Our aim is to equip our students with the skills, experience and outlook to succeed in today’s global society, through a lifestyle of learning, developing and growing in a multi-cultural and multi-lingual environment.

Having worked in this field for over twenty years, I can appreciate that while parents recognize the advantages that an international educational brings, they are also concerned that their children stay in touch with their own cultural backgrounds and become conversant with the traditions, history and literature of their own countries.

These days, a huge range of factors determine the development of young personality and parents are looking for a school which will not only deliver the academic qualifications that their child will need to access the world’s best universities but also foster a spirit of engagement, responsibility and life-long learning which will enable them to cope with a fast-paced global market.

The Swiss American Academy provides a rigorous and universal educational model in a beautiful and secure location in the heart the Swiss Alps where our children can learn and grow, developing healthy bodies and inquiring minds, within a challenging but supportive environment.
