Our academic concept

Learn with head, heart and hands

Our educational concept is based on the fundamental idea of the founder of the school, Hermann Lietz, who, utilising the ideas of Pestalozzi, propagated holistic learning with the head, the heart and the hands. This holistic learning takes place in boarding schools located in the countryside. These boarding schools, do not teach just lessons and subjects, but nurture upbringing as a whole, and offer all the students a second home. Therefore the Lietz boarding schools are sometimes called “countryside upbringing homes”. 

Experiencing higher level secondary education at boarding school

Higher level secondary school starts with the introductory phase. In it, the students are familiarised at an early stage with the modes of working of the higher level secondary school. Being a State-recognised private school, we follow the State of Hesse Upper School Ordinance (OAVO). After a year of the qualification phase, the academic completion of the advanced technical college entrance qualification can be attained. After two years of the qualification phase, the central State of Hesse graduation examination is written in-house.

Individual profile for every student

Through the choice of the advance courses, every student gets an individual profile. Language training in English, French, Latin or Spanish is embedded in contacts with different European schools. In addition, we offer language courses for International students.

The advanced course Business Sciences prepares our students in a targeted manner for reading political economics or business economics. The emphasis on art is a big tradition, with advanced course Art being offered, and numerous extracurricular activities in art (painting, pottery, goldsmith-work, carpentry etc.).
