My story
A Brillantmont education is an opportunity not to just to learn and acquire factual knowledge; it’s an opportunity to open to other cultures, to learn through new experiences and to develop and discover passions and talents. We are proud to play such an important role in the lives of young people from all over the world, helping shape their futures. We hope you’ve seen why Brillantmont is a great school. Let’s see what our school community say.
Megan is of British / Swiss origin and was a day student for six years. Now studying International Relations at York University in the UK (she received an unconditional offer), she reflects with her mum on her BM experiences and how she made the most of her time with us.
Sometimes families are transferred abroad at short notice. Entering a new school in your final year is not easy. It's a crucial year of final grades and university applications and having to adjust to a new environment academically and socially can be challenging.

In this video, Kush, who is now studying at the University of Boulder, Colorado and his mum talk about what it was like to come from the USA to join Brillantmont for the final 12th Grade year and how coming into our small school community, with close teacher support and contact, helped make the transition smoother.
Leticia from Spain joined Brillantmont as a boarding student for one year. She studied an 11th Grade programme covering advanced classes in Maths, Physics, Biology, Chemistry , English and of course, sport, which is compulsory for everyone.

At the end of her Brillantmont year, Leticia returned to Spain to complete her studies with plans to attend university in Spain. In this video, Leticia compares her culturally diverse school experience at BM to that in Spain.
Marta Gehring is well-known in Switzerland as the founder of Techspark. Passionate that children should embrace the workings behind technology from a young age, rather than simply consuming it, Marta created the Techspark Academy, which delivers STEAM courses to young and old alike. In fact, it's a compulsory for our 8th and 9th Graders and is hugely successful.

Marta is also a Brillantmont alum and talks with similar passion about the impact that her Brillantmont years had on her life.
