BGI Akademiet consists of both old and new buildings, together making the framework for a modern and exciting boarding school with plenty of possibilities, especially in the field of sport. A vibrant and dynamic place in constant development, BGI has been continuously growing since 1955, making it the second largest boarding school in Denmark with a capacity for 550 students. Academic and physical education go hand in hand at BGI, in a system where all students live at the school. The two strands impact positively on each other, believes principal Helle Vestergaard.
