Teaching and supervision concept

The Boarding School Privatschule Schloss Crassenstein offers a solid basis for personal development within a caring and structured environment.

An important feature of the boarding school and the school is to offer the necessary space and freedom that enable the students to develop.

Every student is an individual; our social pedagogues and teachers look after their students and provide optimal support in line with their needs; students need support as they will face various academic, cultural, social, emotional, physical, and personal challenges, which in turn will enable positive learning experiences. We enable this support through our programs, routines and events that promote self-esteem, respect and responsibility and we will guide the students in their careers.


The curriculum and requirements of the Abitur program offer core values that ensure that the academic curriculum focuses on the personal development of the students.

We conduct an extensive co-curricular program in the afternoons and weekends, which is in strong ties to local and global communities to broaden and balance the range of personal learning experiences.

There is no shortage of opportunities for personal growth in a school that actively encourages all students to set challenging goals and support them in their efforts to achieve them.
