It is no coincidence that as many as 97 per cent of students continue on to postsecondary education after a year at SKALs Efterskole (SKALs International Boarding School). Offering the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE), the school strives to give its Danish and international students a both personal and educational journey. The approach has placed the school among the five best-performing schools in Denmark. Founded in central Jutland in 1990, SKALs Efterskole was designed to provide an alternative to the many free Danish boarding schools focused on personal development and social interaction.
