The cost of a good education is soaring higher than an American Bald Eagle. And I am not talking about all the Ivy-League universities and historical colleges. What about those elite boarding schools that offer room and board with state-of-the-art this and state-of-the-art that – and cost more than a two-year trip to your local community college?
For the record, there are a number of expensive boarding schools located in the United States and Great Britain. However, when it comes time to decide where to send one’s offspring for an education requiring a parent to mortgage their house, the Swiss have practically cornered that costly, yet exclusive market. Swiss boarding schools are famous for providing an excellent education and cross-cultural training skills. This is due, in large part, to their high academic standards and international focus. Enrollment at private schools not only means children will receive a sound education not afforded anywhere else, but they will also be given career direction and introduction into social circles others can only dream about.
