What languages are offered?
We currently teach in English, and offer French and German as part of our core curriculum. Spanish, Swedish, Mandarin and Italian are optional.
We teach primarily in English but plan to be bilingual in the coming year.
What curriculum do you follow?
On completion of our authorization to teach the International Baccalaureate, we will offer the IB's Primary Years Programme for ages 3-12, and the Diploma Programme for ages 16-18.
Students aged 13-15 will study for iGCSEs, while there is also the option for 16-18 year-olds to take A-Levels.
Do you offer scholarships?
We see community not as an obligation but an essential part of our character and spirit.

How often do you ski?
Our students ski more than any other local school, with at least nine hours per week during the winter, and extra provision for particularly passionate children.
Our students are coached by Verbier's premier instructor, Mike Coppence, and his team from the Ecole Suisse de Ski Verbier.
When is the application deadline?
Copperfield accepts new students on a rolling basis, year-round. Whether you are a family looking to build a life in the mountains, or you need more time to work out whether it is for you, we are here to help.
What is the Verbier community like?
It is impossible to define Verbier as one thing. There is a community of extreme skiers, of casual blue-run goers, of bikers, of food-lovers, of art-collectors, of people from all over the world.
Our school community encompasses at least 18 nationalities, and Verbier many more. There will be a home for you here, wherever you are from.
If you and your family love to be outside, to be social, and to learn, then you will love living on the mountain.
