Current status


Description of the project

Odsherreds Efterskole is a Christian self-governing boarding school (efterskole) offering formal secondary education for 9th and 10th grade. There are around 160 students between 15-17 year, who stay at the school for one year. The school is situated in the western part of Zealand, in a small town named Faarevejle.

An “Efterskole” is a unique schooling concept found only in Denmark. It is a kind of a private boarding school with government grants that provides Secondary School education for young people, predominately between the ages of 14-17. The school is privately run, and this means that there is an annual fee for parents to send their child/children to the school, but families may apply for government funding depending on their financial status.
