General Information

Surval Gstaad is an international boarding school for boys between the ages of 13 – 19. It will open in September 2015, and joins the Surval family and the already well-established all-girls boarding school, Surval Montreux, in providing a quality single sex education to students from around the world. Surval Gstaad will as an all-boys school offer an internationally recognised curriculum with a strong outdoor focus specifically tailored for boys through benefiting from the spectacular geographical setting of Gstaad.

Our commitment is to provide an innovative and unique boy’s boarding education for 13-19 year olds. Whilst focusing on the academic core, we will allow all aspects of the boys’ developments to flourish aimed at encouraging initiative, leadership, and self-fulfilment underpinned by a spirit of teamwork and service through extensive use of the outdoors in our outstanding Alpine location.
