OUR MISSION STATEMENT
Nurturing both academic and personal development go hand in hand. Enshrined in family tradition dating back 200 years, this conviction is something we are very happy to be able to maintain and pass on at our boarding school. Educating young people in both these areas is indeed very close to our heart and we firmly believe that a boarding-school education is particularly suited to both encouraging and challenging a young person in this regard.
Our boarding-school environment is ideal for nurturing a child’s individual skills
The focus of our work lies in providing the encouragement and challenges required for every child to develop into a healthy, mindful adult. Our small boarding-school community (180 students) allows everyone to be seen. We hold good manners in high regard and attach particular importance to students living and learning alongside each other in a respectful and cheerful manner. Young people who have attended a boarding school are known to be independent and self-confident. They can organise themselves well, express their views and integrate well in a community. Friendships play an important role and often last a lifetime! Our compulsory study periods supervised by experienced members of staff, as well as regular report cards with an evaluation of learning behaviour, allow students not only to assess themselves correctly and set structured learning objectives but also achieve those objectives and ultimately enjoy a positive learning experience.

What our alumni have to say about us
Owner of the Frankfurt restaurant “Oosten”
“When I started attending the boarding school in the late 80s, I was a typical latchkey kid raised by a single mother. Two years later, barely having adapted to my new surroundings, my father died. Composed, disciplined and full of warmth, the Lucius/Kissner family took me under their wing. The daily routine of living and learning together with other students at the boarding school taught me a great many skills, including empathy, team spirit and tolerance. What is so special about this boarding school is the ability of the leading figures there to identify and nurture the strengths of their protégés. Even I, in the face of adversity, managed to make something of my life with the help of the boarding school.”
