Re: Evaluation of US high school diploma

I agree with a lot of what PKV has to say.

You also have to keep in mind that to study in switzerland (depending on where) you need to be able to speak/understand etc either German, Italian or French. If he can do that fantastic then the highschool credit translation is the only thing you have to worry about.

You can check out this website, it will give you an idea as to what the universities are looking for.

Since the system is changing it may be possible for your son to start a bachelors program once he is finished with his high school education.

The whole switching in the middle of highschool bit is anybodys guess as to how it will turn out. Be prepared for people to tell you that he has to start in a lower grade etc.

It does not hurt to talk to a few schools and to get all of the paperwork ready. I would even get recommendations from teachers saying that he is a top student etc. Everything helps.
