Aarhus Academy for Global Education (AAGE) is an authorized International Baccalaureate (IB) World School offering the Primary Years (PYP) and Middle Years (MYP) programs of study to international and Danish families. Founded in 2011 as a private English speaking day school, both programs offer an interdisciplinary approach to education which provides students with an understanding of the world around them, how the various components interact with each other and the skills needed for successful interaction as lifelong learners. Whereas the PYP curriculum focuses on the whole child with an emphasis around essential elements such as attitudes, concepts, knowledge, skills and action, the MYP curriculum covers a range of subjects including language acquisition, language and literature, individuals and societies, mathematics, science, the arts and physical education. Upon successful completion of the MYP Certificate, students can enter the highly respected and globally accepted IB Diploma Program (DP) found in over 3000 schools across some 150 countries worldwide.

AAGE can be characterized as a school with happy children and enthusiastic learners who are supported by experienced and passionate teachers working cooperatively to fulfill the school’s vision of striving towards excellence through commitment to improving student learning.


The international section of the Bernadotte School, “The Little House”, is an international school in Denmark which offers education from pre-school to 9th grade (age group 6 – 15 years).

Bernadotte School was opened in 1949 by a group of parents who were motivated by the same ideas which led to the establishment of the United Nations: the prevention of future conflict by the promotion of international understanding.

Educationally, the school had very clear aims from the beginning: a desire to break away from the rigidity and authoritarianism of traditional schooling, and to put into practice the new ideas of child-centered pedagogy. Though the school has developed and adapted a great deal since those days in response to the varying demands of modern society, the guiding principles have held fast and still help to create a learning environment which we feel is very special: an environment which both students and teachers enjoy because everyone can contribute to it in their own way.
Bernadotte School is a Danish school with an international, English-speaking section called The Little House. It is important to note that we are Danish and not an American or British international school, and that our working methods, philosophy and the general ambience of the school will reflect this difference. read more…

The IB Diploma program is an international curriculum where all teaching is in English. At Herlufsholm Skole we also prioritize the Danish courses because it is the primary language of communication on a daily basis.

IB corresponds to the Danish 2nd and 3rd year of upper-secondary school. This is why we have created a Prep-IB class that corresponds to the first year of upper-secondary. We expect that students in our Prep-IB classes show a sufficient level of maturity and independence as well as academic ambition and good results before they can advance to the IB program.

With IB being a challenging program taught solely in English, each student must take an English and Math test as part of the admission procedure for Prep-IB and IB. It is possible to directly start in the IB Diploma program but this requires a high academic level as well as a sufficient level of maturity and willingness to learn. Most students are thus recommended to start in Prep-IB to ensure that their academic level is high enough to give them the best possible IB Diploma exam.
