Many families are relocating back to Switzerland from countries around the world to afford their children a reliable and premium school education. This means that for families hoping to secure a place at one of the leading international schools in Switzerland, now is an important time to complete your international school search and application.
Here are 3 good reasons to complete your research and application for Swiss international schools now:
1) The best international schools in Switzerland may not have places available in August
Premium international schools like La Côte International School Aubonne pride themselves on delivering education in small class sizes in order to attend to each student’s personal needs and aspirations. For all international schools, Admissions are busiest during the summer months, and with an increase in demand from returning families and expats looking for reliable high-quality schooling for their children, these schools may not have a place available in August. To increase the chances of your child getting a place at a good school, talk to Admissions teams as early as possible to find out about in-person or virtual campus tours.
2) Knowing you have a place at the school of your choice is reassuring for the whole family
Whether you are moving between countries or considering switching schools in your area, change can be accompanied by anxiety, especially for children. Knowing your future school, being able to get to know the campus, academic and administrative team either virtually or in-person is a great way to ease those anxieties and instead; build positive thoughts and excitement. A good school will ensure that the admissions process is stress-free and enjoyable for the children and will already be planning how best to integrate new students into the school community. Call the schools you are considering and ask them how they are managing admissions, virtually, as well as in-person.
3) Many Swiss international schools are well-prepared to offer personalised virtual learning
Communities may have to lock down again in the future, and parents need the reassurance of knowing that the school they choose is well-prepared to meet their children’s learning needs. With education generally excellent in Switzerland, Swiss international schools will be able to speak with you about the virtual learning they are providing. Good schools will arrange time for parents to speak with senior teachers either in-person or online, so that they can explain the virtual or blended learning which would be available to students who are unable to access campus.
At LCIS, we offer all families the opportunity to join a personalised introduction to the school. Our campus is now open for visits, or alternatively, we warmly invite you to join us for a Virtual Discovery Meeting. A member of our admissions team will guide your family through life at the school, give you a tour of our campus and facilities, and introduce you to a senior teacher who will be able to answer your questions about academics, our Virtual School Experience, and pastoral care. As part of a global network of 66 schools within the Nord Anglia Education group, we benefit from shared best practices, ideas and materials to be uniquely well-prepared to deliver an effective and personalised Virtual School Experience when needed.
