What is an “efterskole”?

An efterskole is a unique Danish residential school, where students from the ages of 14 to 18 can choose to spend one, two or three years to finish their primary education.

Each efterskole is a self-governing independent institution and it deals with both the educational and personal development of the students. The efterskole embraces a common educational focus on enlightenment for life, general education and democratic citizenship.

Compared to public schools, the efterskole has substantial freedom in terms of choice of subjects, teaching methods and educational approach. These vary in accordance with the school’s political, religious or pedagogical orientation.
