International School OWL

The boarding school to study in Germany or worldwide

German Baccalaureate

The International School OWL is a full-day boarding school based in Paderborn, right in the centre of Germany. Our students graduate with the German Baccalaureate, a high school diploma that is recognised by universities worldwide. It is an IB programme (International A-level) with additional German language courses. The graduation is recognised by universities in Germany and by universities worldwide. There is no need for an additional foundation year.

International School OWL

Boarding School

At our boarding school we offer a modern living space for our international students. Our minor aged students will receive an extensive educational supervision by our tutors, so that they will be guided at all times in the best way possible. The supervision supports our students with managing their daily routines and getting accustomed to a foreign culture.

It is our philosophy to do our part in creating a tolerant and open-minded society in a more and more globalised world, so we expect no less from our students. Of course, there is also time and opportunity to take part in several activities like sports, cultural activities or exploring the beautiful city of Paderborn and Germany.
