“Salem is not only an incredible opportunity for education, shared responsibility, and experience. Salem is friendship to me.”

Clara, 11th grade.


Clara has been attending Schule Schloss Salem for the past year and a half – as a scholarship recipient. Clara is one of around 130 students currently living and learning at Schule Schloss Salem through the acquisition of a scholarship.

Schule Schloss Salem was founded by Kurt Hahn in 1920 with the conviction that a modern school must take on not only a solid academic education but also educational and character-building tasks.

As part of Salem’s comprehensive program, in addition to the classes of a state-recognized gymnasium, there are also hands-on, artistic, creative, and athletic offerings, social “services,” and student participation in decision-making. More than ever, Salem is convinced that a good boarding school is the ideal form of learning and living for children and young people today.
