Krogerup Højskole

The finest purpose of the folk high school movement is to let inspiration blossom.

About the school

Free from exams, it is possible to work voluntarily. As a student, you are only controlled by your eagerness and the passion to the collective goal, which gives you the opportunity to discover new personal qualities - to go places, you have never gone before. You can take your time to explore your passion for life and other people. You enter a dialogue with and about the unknown and the unexpected. Values and ideals are examined and weighed. You learn to differentiate and appreciate through exchange. Values and conflicts of society become clearer. Desire and will, preoccupation and reflection, fantasy and creativity - these are qualities Krogerup cherishes and substitutes for shallowness, undue haste and indifference. Your opinion matters.
