INTERNATIONAL BOARDING SCHOOL ADVICE

"Switzerland is known as the country with a very high number of excellent international schools and world-leading international boarding schools with an outstanding reputation worldwide!

The choice of the right school, whether an international school or a boarding school, is elementary as a foundation for happy and successful school years, as a basis, for a later successful professional career!

Especially for our clients, who are financially and geographically flexible and independent, to be able to make the best school choice for their own children, it is particularly important to "take on board" the right experts, who with their decades of experience and personal contacts can act as an excellent door opener to the best international schools and boarding schools in Switzerland, Germany and Austria.

These personal contacts and the trust built up over many years between the international schools and internationalboarding schools and ACENTUM are also a key to a successful school time for your children"

We support and accompany our clients from the first information about the Swiss school system and an overview about all eligable schools (international schools / international boarding schools in all parts of Switzerland as well as in Germany and Austria), through the in-deep evaluation, to the integration in the selected school, exactly aligned with the previous knowledge and needs for their children.

At the request of the parents, most of whom live abroad, we act as the trustworthy continuous link between the parents and the selected school as well as between the student for the duration of the school period. With much empathy we are THE trustworthy, competent and continuous contact person for the child on site.

Also due to the physical proximity, we can contact the student at any time, even at short notice, in the boarding school not only by phone or video chat, but if necessary or requested also personally visit the student in person in the school and support.

At the request of the parents, we certainly also support and organize the leisure and vacation program of the student and also support the parents with any questions regarding the care and school time of the student.


The long-standing and trusting contacts with the schools in the allows us to intervene discreetly and effectively in the best interests of the child best possible before any misunderstandings or problems arise or could arise.

The personal contact person at ACENTUM should be a constant confidant for the child over the long school period, so that the child contacts this contact person at any time with his or her worries and needs, in order to ensure a pleasant and enjoyable school time even far away from home.

The big advantage for the parents is that you do not have to be involved in every matter, but can be sure that the smaller and medium matters can be clarified in a trustworthy way in the sense of the child and the parents early and routinely. But parents also know that as soon as it should be necessary, they will be informed by their personal contact person at ACENTUM.

For many years, we have maintained a close and trusting relationship with the most recommended international schools and boarding schools in the DACH countries
(Germany - Austria - Switzerland). This enables us to provide our clients with the best possible contacts to the institutions in question in a competent and neutral manner and to fully consider the needs of the children in our recommendations.

The following school-leaving qualifications are generally possible in international schools and international boarding schools in Switzerland. However, please consider, it is important to note that the respective range of school-leaving qualifications varies greatly from school to school and in particular depending on the respective canton in which the international school or boarding school is located:
