The International School OWL is a newly founded, full-day boarding school, based in Paderborn, in the centre of Germany. It is a cooperation with the International Foundation College at Paderborn University. We offer a high school diploma, the German Baccalaureate. Our classes start after junior high school and will last 6 semesters in total. After graduation, our students can apply for German universities or universities worldwide. During the first-year course students attend English and German language courses. Additionally, there will be a mathematics unit. The second and third year courses are designed to obtain the International Advanced Level qualification. Students have the choice between a technical-scientific course and a business course.

Our school offers an excellent international education through full-day schooling in a multilingual environment, as well as an international, college-preparatory curriculum,  containing both English and German courses. Integrated in our curriculum, is the Edexcel International Advanced Level, a qualification created by leading edicational supplier Pearson.

At our boarding school we offer a modern living space for our international students. Our minor aged students will receive an extensive educational supervision by our pedagogues, so that they will be supported at all times - even on the weekends.
