COVID-19: IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Please check this page regularly for the latest information on our learning programs and school activities

School-Wide Protective Measures

We hope everyone has had a restful and meaningful holiday season! Due to the latest Corona protective measures put forth by the state and federal government, all learning – across all school sections and classes – will continue remotely for the month of January. Emergency supervision will be offered only to students of grades 1-6, who have no possibility of being supervised at home. Although we would of course have much preferred to welcome your children back to school in person, we support the approach of the state and the federal government in the current very unclear situation regarding the status of the spread of Covid-19. We are confident that we can offer your children the best opportunities to continue their learning path successfully with our tested and meanwhile established distance learning concepts. Please feel free to contact our School Leadership Team with any questions you may have.

We wish you all strength, patience and positivity in this time.  We will notify you immediately, as soon as the situation changes.

Admissions

Our Admissions Office is available Monday-Friday to answer any inquiries and discuss enrollment at Cologne International School. Due to the latest Corona protective measures, we are unfortunately unable to hold on-campus appointments, give school tours, or invite prospective students to visit our classes. As soon as the situation changes, we will update our policy here. In the meantime, our Admissions and Leadership Teams continue to be available via e-mail, telephone and video calls. Please contact us to make a virtual appointment:
