Unlocking opportunities – why 8th and 9th Grade at Brillantmont International School could be the right choice for your child

Our 8th and 9th Grade programmes can pave the way for your child’s success. At Brillantmont, we recognize the importance of these formative years in shaping a student’s academic journey and future prospects. We provide an enriching and supportive environment for students at this pivotal stage and equip students with the knowledge, skills, and confidence needed to excel in their academic programme and beyond.

In 8th Grade, which marks the final year of Middle School, our programme of studies is meticulously designed to meet the needs of international 13-14 year olds, and to develop a love of learning. It is important not to focus too soon on a particular subject but to enjoy a wide range, since as students grow and develop curiosity, their poles of interest may change.


Outside the classroom, 8th and 9th Grade students engage actively in extra-curricular activities, many of which are designed to develop leadership skills. These activities not only complement their academic pursuits but also foster personal growth and social development, preparing them for the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. Boarding school life is always full of exciting things to do after class and at weekends.

At Brillantmont International School, we take pride in nurturing students who embody qualities such as responsibility, reflection, confidence, engagement, innovation, courage, and international-mindedness. Our school values the individual, and this is reflected in our curriculum, which celebrates the cultural diversity of our students.

8th and 9th Grades are also ideal times to study abroad for one year because until 10th Grade, there is no pressure of external exams. This means that 8th and 9th Grades are the perfect opportunity for students to enjoy an international learning experience, discovering boarding school life and making friends from across the globe.

Parents may be worried about sending their child so far, but coming to a small school like Brillantmont makes that transition easier. Family owned and run for 5 generations, a study experience at Brillantmont is like being part of a big family, cared for, comfortable, supported and safe.
