Our mission

“In a globalized world, we facilitate a cultural and life-enriching experience that has a lasting positive impact on a young person’s life.

Customized, individual, personal.

Most students call it, “My second home, my second family.”

When we hear that, our mission is accomplished because our goal is for you to not only break new ground academically, but also to grow personally from this adventure and to find people abroad who will be with you for the rest of your life.”

Paul B. Hallgrimson
Honorary President

Our schools

We hear again and again from our students: “It’s not so boring. Learning is fun here! In Germany, I have the feeling that I have to fit into the system and am one among many. Here, the system is made to fit me. I have so many opportunities to design my schedule! I get individual support from all the teachers. It’s just great and very different from Germany!”

Do you need a change in your school routine? Do you want lessons that promote your talents and interests? You want to stand on your own two feet, but at the same time have the support of a host family or boarding school community? You are looking for new friends from other cultures? Are you active, open-minded, adaptable, friendly and ready for an adventure that will broaden your horizons academically, socially and emotionally? Then this is the right place for you! And if you are between 14 and 18 years young, perfect!
