CJD Christophorusschulen Berchtesgaden – The boarding school

Like a small mountain village, Germany’s alpine boarding school is located at 1200 metres above sea level high above the Berchtesgaden valley. The surrounding peaks of the Berchtesgaden Alps form an imposing backdrop.

In this magnificent environment, 100 boarding school students live and learn – in line with the goals and values of the CJD. In addition to a development into self-determined young people, we also support young people in achieving their individual goals.

The course of the week is clearly structured for the boarding school students and fits harmoniously into everyday school life. There are timetables and learning times as well as joint boarding activities and individual times for free design. With each child and adolescent entrusted to us, an individual weekly plan is developed and developed according to his specific needs. Fixed components of the weekly routine are the shared meals, learning times as well as changing sports and game evenings as an offer. Skiing, cycling tours, table kickers, billiards, cooking together and visits to the cinema are welcome by the young people as leisure activities. In addition, it is possible to participate in the training of the local sports clubs and to spend.B sports in football, wrestling, rugby or tennis.
