Brillantmont International School is one of the oldest schools in Switzerland. It was founded in 1882 and is still owned by the founding family. What makes Brillantmont special is not only its location in the heart of the vibrant city of Lausanne but also its size, which creates a strong sense of community, a real home from home, in which boys and girls aged 11-18 learn and develop in a warm, supportive environment. Brillantmont offers internationally recognised courses leading to British IGCSE, AS and A Level examinations or a US High School Graduation Diploma with SAT. On completion of their studies, Brillantmont students enter universities all over the world. An average class size of 9 students ensures that students receive maximum teacher attention. A strong extra-curricular programme provides opportunities for leadership (Student House Leaders, TEDx, MUN), for belonging to a sports team or fulfilling creative potentail through art, vocal club or rock band. Students can participate in humanitarian work through Habitat for Humanity. Brillantmont also offers a Summer Course in July and August to learn French or English with sports and activities for 10-17 year olds.
