Information for International Students

Welcome to the Schloss-Schule Kirchberg! We are glad you found your way to our page that is designed to provide important information for those interested in an excellent education and experience at the Schloss-Schule Kirchberg.

Hundreds of students from all around the globe have already benefitted from the small class sizes, individualized academic and language support, enriching extra-curricular activities, and professional support for international students based on over a decade of experience.

A total of 45 international students from 14 countries out of 330 students total at present are working towards their goal of the German Abitur diploma in preparation for top universities in Germany. Others are here for a shorter period to simply benefit from the immersive experience and delve deeply into the German language and culture.

Enjoy a look through the informational materials which are available for download and the media files in order to find out more about life on campus and the range of programs that we offer for our students.

We encourage you to also get in touch with us for specific questions, plan a visit, and to do discuss the next steps for applications and admissions by using the contact info at the bottom of this page.

We look forward to hearing from you!

As an added bonus, we also have the ability to offer guided, interactive private tours to individuals or groups through this platform. Take a moment to click your way through the campus, and let us know when you would like to organize a time for a personal tour!
