Non-denominational boarding school for boys and girls in a privileged area in the Black Forest, with rural campus, international atmosphere and excellent academic programmes including the Abitur diploma.

Nestled amidst a rural campus 900 metres above sea level in a particularly scenic area of the Black Forest, Birklehof is one of the most prestigious and sought-after secondary boarding schools in Southern Germany.

Students enjoy a diverse social and cultural environment that helps them develop into tolerant, compassionate and open-minded individuals who are capable to lead and inspire their communities and beyond.

The school’s academic approach is rather unique and focused on encouraging students to work independently and develop a strong sense of self-confidence and self-discipline. This, combined with dedicated and passionate teachers and small class sizes (between 8 to 19 students per class), results in Birklehof students becoming more independent and willing to step out of their comfort zone to achieve their dreams.

From Grade 8 students can also focus on an academic profile – Art, Music, Language or Science & Technology. Students who demonstrate proficiency in Science can join Plus-MINT while those with a musical talent can opt for the ABRSM diploma.

After eight years of secondary education, students can obtain the Abitur, the German school leaving and matriculation certificate.

Experts from different fields are frequently invited into the school to inspire students and the school offers both university preparation courses and personalised career consultations. With this in mind, it comes as no surprise to know that Birklehof students are offered admission into some of the world’s best universities.

The academic programme is combined with a wide range of recreational activities, debate clubs and outdoor sports to promote team spirit and leadership.
