Herlufsholm was established in 1565 as a boarding school for boys. Day students were admitted from 1966 and girls as both boarders and day pupils in 1985.
Herlufsholm aims to provide a Danish framework, encompassing Christian and democratic ideals, in an historic setting, for the optimal preparation of young people- irrespective of background and financial means – for their adult lives. Herlufsholm remains a boarding school rich in tradition, but it is also a modern internationally oriented institution. Both in and out of the classroom, pupils at Herlufsholm acquire academic and personal skills.
