Owned by the same family since the school’s foundation in 1882, Brillantmont is a leading Swiss boarding and day school, offering internationally recognised programmes.
Brillantmont is in the centre of Lausanne, a lively city on the shores of Lake Geneva, in the French-speaking part of Switzerland.
The Summer Course in July and August welcomes 10-17-year-olds from around 30 different countries, with nationality quotas to ensure diversity. Students choose French or English classes in the mornings and are in small classes (average of 12 students). The teachers use creative, interactive teaching methods and encourage the students to develop oral fluency and confidence in the language. In the afternoons, sports are played and may include stand up paddle, banana boat, volleyball, basketball, Frisbee, Zumba, tennis and many more.
On Wednesday afternoons, the students go out with their class to visit a local place of interest, such as the chocolate factory, a famous castle or the Olympic Museum.
Saturday is arrival and departure day and an excursion is organised to Berne or Geneva, or in Lausanne. On Sundays, all students go on a full day excursion to discover a new area of Switzerland and are active (rock-climbing, waterpark, glacier hiking, watersports, tree circuits and more)
Students live in beautiful houses on campus, fully supervised 24h/24h by experienced staff, with a nursing service. Bedrooms are twin or triple and many have views of the lake and Alps. A few bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms, but mostly students share (3-4 students per bathroom).
With 100 students per week, the Summer Course offers a home from home, family environment, with lots of opportunities to discover this beautiful area, advance in French or English and make lasting friends from all over the world.”
