Set in a stunning location overlooking Lake Geneva, Surval Montreux is a unique private international boarding school for girls between the ages of 12 and 19. Founded in 1961, the school has provided over 55 years of excellence in girls’ education. Having changed its name from Surval Mont Fleuri and enhanced its academic offering in 2012; the school continues to provide girls from around the world with an excellent education, invaluable language and culture skills, as well as expanding their horizons through a diverse enrichment programme consisting of charity work, international trips, sports and clubs. As a small school, Surval provides a genuine family atmosphere and offers a bespoke and imaginative internationally recognized curriculum programme which is tailored to each individual girl and fosters curiosity and courage; this is coupled with excellent personal careers advice ensuring our girls gain access to top universities around the world. Girls can join at the age of 12 or 13 for our Foundation Year Programme, and then continue on for either the British IGCSE and A Levels Programmes or the American High School Diploma. For girls who would like a year of languages, culture and travel after graduating high school, Surval offers a unique Pre-University Programme especially tailored for each girl to develop and learn before embarking on university studies and future careers. Surval also offers a Summer Camp exclusively for girls from the age of 11 to 16, where they join from 2 to 6 weeks and learn a language, participate in fun sports and activities, and develop their culture and customs skills through lessons such as etiquette, art, cookery and fashion. The school also offers a unique winter experience through the 3 to 8 week Surval Winter Camp for girls aged 12 to 19 that combines winter sports with a bespoke programme for each girl and a wide variety of enrichment opportunities.
