Secondary High School Guidance
For Years 8 and 9
When students are in Year 8 and Year 9 at JFK, the school starts working closely with the parents and the students to advise and guide them in the difficult task of choosing the right school for their child. We have many years of experience working with Swiss schools and also with a wide range of international schools throughout the world. We have an excellent record in placing our students in their first-choice school.
Schools after JFK
Our students continue in many different schools according to their choice and their parents’ choice. Here are some examples of some schools in Switzerland where our students are placed: Le Rosey, Aiglon College, Beau Soleil, Brillantmont, Collège Champittet, TASIS Lugano and Zuoz. Some examples in the UK: Wellington College, Eton College, King Edwards, Witley and Cheltenham Ladies. Other students also chose to go back to their own country or follow their family to a new destination.
We have a particular cooperation and collaboration with our sister school Le Rosey for whom we prepare students to enter this prestigious establishment. While this partnership arrangements do not guarantee entry for our students, Le Rosey has a particular confidence in the preparation of the students to a boarding and academic standard, the quality of our school reports and other application documents.
JFK ensures that all the necessary documents are provided to the schools chosen by our future leavers. These include application forms, past reports, letters of recommendation and any other documents that may be requested.
Where possible, we organise visits to the new schools. The students may also have the opportunity of spending a day or more there, so that they get a more complete picture of life at the school.
This is an ongoing process throughout the leaving student’s last year at JFK, helping them through all stages of the transition process.
