SCIE menu


Dear families, dear prospective students,

As you certainly know, our website is completely dedicated to you. Therefore, we have decided to add this menu to keep you updated on all the information that may be helpful in expanding your knowledge of the Swiss Confederation. By helping you understand the country where your children are going to live in a more tangible way, our hope is to reduce the geographical distance between us. Our aim is also to help you live this temporary separation in the best possible way and, above all, to help your children integrate smoothly into the new reality and culture that await them, before and after enrolment in one of our selected boarding schools.

Here at the Swiss Center for International Education, the concept of hospitality is every bit as important as achieving a degree whose excellence is globally recognized. The wellbeing of students and their families is one of the cornerstones of our philosophy of education; we are also particularly attentive to the issue of integration, an essential point for anyone wishing to make the most of their education abroad. In this regard, we think that a general introduction to the way of life, customs and traditions of our wonderful country, together with some general data, could be a useful first step. Of course, our assistance also extends to parents wishing to travel to Switzerland to be with their children and visit the country; this includes your travel arrangements, accommodation, cultural itineraries and translation services. We will do our best to make you feel at home, you can count on us.

Dear parents and dear students, we look forward to welcoming you to Switzerland.

Alberto Giuffrida
