(Private) Boarding Schools in Germany

You can also attend a boarding school in Germany with GLS. Boarding schools are more expensive than day schools, and usually they expect a minimum stay of one year. One big advantage: The boarding schools below offer you the possibility to do the "Abitur" and then go on to study at a German university. If you want to do the Abitur, plan to spend at least the final 2 years prior to Abitur exams in Germany. All boarding schools demand that you speak German quite well.

If you don´t, you can first do a preparatory course in Berlin and then transfer to the boarding school of your choice. The boarding school program starts with a starter weekend in Berlin
