Our offer

Not for school, for life we learn!

When students walk into school laughing, when parents carefree hand their charges over to our care - then there is much more behind it than just modernly equipped classrooms and home-cooked lunches.

Dedicated educators, green outdoor classrooms, holistic education, excellent career and college preparation, digital infrastructure, digital curricula and all-day programs without end, all contribute every day to making students feel in the best possible hands at our facilities. With us, the joy of learning and the spirit of research thrive through shared experience and experimentation.

We place special emphasis on bilingual education with native speakers from over 30 nations. This makes it possible for our students to obtain internationally recognized foreign language certificates and to participate in language excursions abroad.

The intensive cooperation between parents and students, education providers and school administrators, partners, entrepreneurs, local authorities and sponsors enables school education at the highest level. The many awards, certifications and seals of approval are impressive proof of this.

The future in view

In line with Saxony's education and curriculum, supported by international guidelines and scientific findings, our students are made fit for life and global competition. They are helped in this by new forms of learning, performance comparisons between the schools in our network and other Saxon schools, creative competitions and extensive additional offerings. One of the special features of our schools is the early teaching of business knowledge: Practical relevance is continuously provided by annual company internships lasting several days, practical work experience in a wide range of trades, taking the Entrepreneur's Driving Licence or taster days at study institutions.

Notebook project

Our schools score with digital infrastructure, digital curricula and digitally competent teachers. Through digitization and the development of artificial intelligence, we will find ourselves in a constant process of transformation.

We would like to provide each and every one of our students from grade 2 onwards with their own notebook at a reasonable price, which will be their personal work device. We have opted for a uniform, universally usable 2-in-1 device (laptop and tablet), which meets all the requirements of a modern digital everyday classroom. A notebook that can be used for writing both electronically and with a pen, which contains electronic textbooks, has access to the school cloud (LernSax) and contains all the applications that are necessary in everyday school life. We will provide special support for families with several children or limited financial resources!
