Students join us from all corners of the earth to attend our Secondary School, where a choice of courses in English is offered. The 2-4 year boarding program leads to the IB Diploma.

Home away from home

The Boarding House of Cologne International School can host up to 20 students. There are double and single student rooms that are modern and comfortably furnished. The spacious common area with a kitchen is a great place for boarders to relax, play board games or watch movies. The common meals take place there as well as weekly meetings that strengthen the family-like character in this “home away from home”.

Our team of onsite mentors oversee the academic and social-emotional wellbeing of each student. On weekends, diverse leisure activities and excursions to sporting events, cultural sights or neighboring towns keep students engaged and happy. The boarders can also take public transport downtown – about 20 minutes – to go shopping or explore the sites of the city of Cologne.
