Counseling & Admission

Your Child is in the Center of our Attention

Are you looking for a boarding school or are you wondering whether a boarding school is the best decision for your child to be ideally prepared for the future: This is not an easy decision, because it is not just about a good and well-founded school education. You also need to be sure that your child is being well looked after. And first and foremost, your child must feel comfortable in the new environment!

It is important for us that you and your child take a conscious and active decision to join our boarding school. The Humboldt Boarding School should be a new home for your child, a place to feel just as comfortable as in a large family. We consider this the basis for the academic performance that you and the Humboldt Boarding School staff aspire to reach for your child.

We are happy to provide you with an overview of the necessary application steps. You will find that we can advise and support you in almost all questions.

Please also feel free to address any questions about the Lindenberg Gymnasium, the Humboldt boarding home or admission requirements to us. We can also arrange an individual appointment with an intensive consultation in order to get to know each other better.

We look forward to your inquiry and a conversation with you!
