About the school

We focus on professional education, gymnastics, sports and music. We have a great supply of creative, music and sport elective subjects. Our primary subjects in sports are football, handball, tumbling, rhythmic gymnastics and dance. We go alpine skiing. We offer you a big tumbling hall and a sport hall to practice all of the elective subjects.

Values

Elbæk Efterskole is a Grundtvigian Efterskole with roots in the Danish cultural history. The basic idea behind our school is that everyone here must develop courage and feel joy in life which makes you want to show initiative and assume responsibility.

Location

Our school is located in the beautiful uplands of eastern Jutland nearby Horsens Fjord, only 13 km from Horsens city, 35 km from Aarhus and 40 km from Vejle.

Education 

All students participate in Danish, Mathematics, English, German, Science, morningsong, tell time, run and gymnastics. The students receive more classes than the norm prescribes in public schools in Denmark. The education is organized towards graduation for 9th or 10th grade. This means that we are not a school where you can avoid exams. In 9th grade all the subjects – even the little ones - are prioritized with great importance. Subjects such as biology, geography, history etc. are scheduled during the school-week, and not as a theme-week. We do not offer special education.

The school

Elbæk Efterskole was founded in 1887, and consists of both new and old buildings. All the buildings are connected somehow. We have a sports hall, a hall of mirrors and a tumblinghall and a big green area. The students live in rooms with 2, 3 or 4 people – each room contains own bath and toilet.

Everyday life

We profile on having a broad supply of creative, music and sports elective subjects. We can mention rhythmic gymnastics, tumbling gymnastics, football, handball, volleyball, basketball, badminton, dance, textile, paper-workshop, arts, cooking-classes, choir and music. Sports and physical motion is a huge part of the everyday life for the students. Each week there is 1 hour jogging and 4-5 hours gymnastics. These hours are aside the elective subjects.

Travels and trips

Every year we arrange one week of alpine skiing in Austria. We hire 12-14 Austrian ski-instructors to teach you alpine skiing. If you’re already familiar with this discipline, you will become even better. We also arrange a trip to Berlin where the focus will be German history and culture. We also offer small trips to the local area.

 

Spare time

We prioritize an active leisure time. It will be possible for the students to utilize the facilities of the school in their sparetime: Workshops, sportshall, hall of mirrors, tumbling hall, music room etc. In addition to that, the students plan and settle joint events during the evenings.
