Principal Jacob Solsø Holm will welcome us at the Aarhus Børnehøjskole (Aarhus Children's High School), and present the values behind the school followed by a tour around the area. 

What is Aarhus Børnehøjskole?

Aarhus Børnehøjskole is a high school for children in the age 6-13 years old. The school is located at Nørre Allé 44 in the heart of Aarhus. The children's high school is a living house with creative courses and learning activities spread throughout the week all year round.

The aim is to make the world bigger for the smallest. This must be done by allowing children to meet the high school thoughts of community, formation and dignity. Furthermore, the aim is to give children a place where they can practice being curious about themselves, each other and on life. Aarhus Børnehøjskole is a children's high school for everyone - no matter who you are or what you believe in.

Courses and Teaching

  • Arts and Crafts
  • Music and Drama
  • Play and Technology
  • Gastronomy

The point is for the child to learn something, but more importantly: be something for others in a community where it is not about showing what the single child can do, but about being a person.
