Boarding at St. George’s, an Introduction

As an International School, we are proud to welcome students from all over the world. In fact, our students come from 60 different countries, from right here in Switzerland to China, South Africa, Canada and more.

While some of our students live with their families here in Montreux, others come to study with us while their parents remain overseas, or have parents who travel often. This is why we offer a variety of different boarding options, from weekly to full board, that are designed to meet your family’s needs.

What is it like to board at St. George’s?

All our boarders live under the same roof at our Boarding House. It is right on campus, so students can get to class and back again in no time at all. And we have been expanding; a new boarding wing was added in 2017. We have 1 House Parent for every 8 students, and there is space for up to 100 boarders. Our House Parents provide pastoral support to students, from guidance on school matters to empathetic support for any problems that students may encounter.

At weekends we offer a dynamic programme of activities, from skiing in the Alps to shopping days in Italy. Of course, there is plenty of time for sports, performing arts and homework, to read a book or call home and catch up with family. Students are able to sign out to go to Vevey or Montreux, two beautiful and safe lakeside towns close to St. George’s.

At what age can students become boarders?

We welcome boys and girls from ages 8-18, for either weekly or full board options. We have different floors for boys and girls. The House Parents live on the same floor as the students they are responsible for and the Boarding Director lives on campus and his family. This means we can ensure daily support and supervision for our boarders.

Can parents come to visit?

Our parents are always welcome on campus, and we know that for our students it is both exciting and important to spend time with loved ones.

If you’re considering enrolling your child or children as boarders at St. George’s, we encourage you to book and visit to come and see the facilities and meet the staff. We believe it is the best way to find out if boarding is right for your family.
