Boarding schools provide young people with something very special.

On the one hand, a safe framework helps give the students the peace of mind needed to focus on learning new things. It helps them improve and challenge themselves under the guidance of experienced adults and highly educated teachers. On the other hand, a boarding school also becomes the setting for deep and valuable friendships. It is a supportive community where you can share your experiences and which becomes into a strong, useful network after you leave the school.

Herlufsholm is a boarding school which prioritizes the students’ wellbeing and personal development. In addition to having high academic standards, Herlufsholm offers students the opportunity of student conferences and exchanges, national and international volunteer work and a very broad range of extracurricular activities. All this on top of the school’s many traditions and festive events.
