Schule Schloss Salem is Germany’s most prestigious boarding school for students aged 10 to 19. It was founded in 1920 by Kurt Hahn, who later also founded Gordonstoun School, the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, Outward Bound and the United World Colleges. Salem pursues a holistic approach to education. A range of academic programmes are offered: the German High School programme (Abitur), the International Baccalaureate (IB), International Classes (year 8, 9 and 10), and Summer Schools for students aged 9 – 16. It compromises three beautiful campuses near Lake Constance: Lower and Middle School at Salem Castle and Upper School Salem International College at Spetzgart Castle and Campus Härlen. Salem is a state-accredited, independent, non-profit organization with about 600 students from all over the world. Salem’s cosmopolitan atmosphere is enhanced by staff members from several countries. Involvement in extra-curricular activities and the life in the boarding community have the same significance as academic achievement. All students in the upper years must engage in community service and attend a regular programme of sports and outdoor pursuits. Participation in theatre, music and visual arts is strongly encouraged. Salem’s aim of education is to build personalities, who respect the individual, feel responsible for their environment and have internalized the democratic ideal.
