St. Gilgen International School- Austria International Schools


The St Gilgen International School opens for grades 6 to 10 in 2007 and will add grade 11 in August 2008. Our mission is to offer a balanced and challenging international edcuation to motivated and talented boarding and day students.
The St. Gilgen International School is committed to the framework of the International Baccalaureate Middle Years and Diploma programme and will seek IBO authorization immediately after opening.
As special points of emphasis Film and Media Studies, Peace and Conflict Studies and European Union projects are integrated in the curriculum. An artists in residence and special visitors programme offers additional engagement through special arts projects, music master classes, and performing arts activities. Mother-tongue maintenance is a high priority, supported by tutors and/or distance learning provisions. Academic courses are taught in English, with German, Spanish and other languages on offer. For Middle Years students whose native language is not English intensive English instruction can be provided.
Campus and residences are built in a beautiful lakefront park in St. Gilgen on the Wolfgangsee, a short distance from Salzburg. The school's design values openness, light and very strong links with the host community. For the first school year the school will operate in renovated historic buildings as well as new built academic and boarding facilities and include a state of the art library and media centre as the heart of the school, a performing arts and music centre in the house where Mozart's mother was born and lived, fine arts and media production studios with excellent provisions, and modern laboratories for the sciences. The school maintains a permanent office in St Gilgen, the entire campus will be completed in 2007. Along with its own boathouse the school provides sailing and water activities. At the doorstep are modern gymnasia, swimming pools, climbing walls, riding stables as well as skiing and mountaineering activities. Opportunities for all students to engage in local and international service projects are an essential part of the school's expectations.
