Description

Copperfield Verbier is the world’s only ski-in, ski-out international school, located in the Swiss alpine village of Verbier.

We have hired world-class teachers, built an inspiring and peaceful campus, and developed an empowering educational philosophy.

Our vision is to educate students who are globally-minded, compassionate, confident, and kind. Copperfield students will be academically skilled; fluent in multiple languages; accomplished writers and communicators; artistically driven and knowledgeable; scientifically aware and trained; emotionally resilient; physically fearless; generous of spirit and skill; leaders who also know how and when to follow. Above all else, Copperfield students will be designers of their own lives and of a better world for others.

Teaching is considered one of the most valuable professions in our society. At Copperfield, we provide faculty and all staff with an environment where their individuality is emphasised and their membership of the community encouraged. All teachers have opportunities to improve their skills, launch their own initiatives, and thrive personally as well as professionally.

We are grateful when things go well, and we will bring others with us. We will share our fortune with those who need it. By opening our doors to the most talented and kind students, and not only financial resources, we will build a community that resembles the kind of society in which we would like to live. Our scholarship programme ensures that our admissions process can be needs-blind.

Above all, Copperfield’s vision is to be a global leader in forward-thinking, international education. We will be a diverse and accountable school that functions as a hub of our local community and a launchpad for the global ambitions of young people. Copperfield is, in every way, an education for all seasons.

Extra-Curricular

Our extra-curricular offerings are as extensive and rich as our classroom programme. All of our students have the chance to learn an instrument, and are taught by professional musicians who have performed with the world’s best orchestras. There are abundant creative activities available to our students: they can learn music production with a world-class DJ, or take landscape photography lessons with a Verbier expert. Our students ski for at least nine hours per week, with extra training for particularly passionate students. We don’t just ski at Copperfield. Here you can train in tennis, golf, hockey, football and even horse riding. Our tennis courts are a 30-second walk from our classrooms; the ski slopes are on our doorstep; even the golf course is a stone’s throw away. If your child has a particular passion and talent for certain sports we will assist in providing specialist coaching. With former national-level footballers and university runners in our faculty, students are never short of sporting role models.
