“If we spoke a different language, we would perceive a somewhat different world” - Wittgenstein
One of the highlights at Surval is celebrating our diverse international family.
Family here means a mix of cultures, customs, languages, religions, tastes, callings, interests… in short, a magnificent melting pot! It is not always easy to live in an international environment; and yet by taking the time to understand any differences, we are all best prepared to face the world beyond Surval.
Surval girls relish their immersion in the language and culture of Switzerland. We remain true to our roots as a famous Swiss finishing school and continue to include within our curriculum a popular programme of intensive French and Savoir-Vivre: combining language, art, culinary arts and Etiquette, complemented by a rich schedule of international travel. Our girls develop excellent understanding of nationalities, cultures and languages and respect for each other.
All Surval girls benefit from this unique programme, refreshed and remodelled to support and equip modern young women for their next steps and the outside world.
A Surval girl can walk into any room – interviews, conferences, social situations – anywhere in the world and know how to conduct herself.
This ‘globalising’ of our girls is not just what is taught in the classroom, it’s our way of life.
