Survalienne Stories

Anastasiia Stepanenko


Anastasiia joined Surval in 2017 to follow the American High School Diploma program and graduated in 2021. She was also elected Student of the Year for 2020-2021.

After graduating from Surval Montreux, Anastasiia continued her studies in the UK and is currently studying for a Business Bachelor Programme at City University of London.

Anastasiia has very fond memories of her years at Surval and says: "During my time in Surval, I learned many important life skills such as being independent and being respectful. My academic courses at Surval taught me critical thinking and communication skills.

Boarding at Surval taught me so much about other nationalities, because I met a lot of girls from other countries. We became best friends, and I am still in touch with some of the friends I met there.

At Surval we all were like sisters, it was so much fun! In my opinion, Surval gives every girl more confidence in herself and helps develop leadership skills."

Anastasiia is looking forward to her new role as a Surval Ambassador and wants to help other girls to understand what a Surval experience means. For her, Surval Montreux is not just the usual boarding school for girls, it is a life-changing place.
