The step into boarding school is a big one and should be well considered. What awaits you at Salem is hard to imagine in advance. A taster visit will give you at least a small insight into our everyday life at Schule Schloss Salem.
There are several ways of getting to know Salem: Families with less time have the opportunity to speak to an admissions counsellor and take an intensive tour of the school and boarding facilities. Guest children are usually welcomed by a Salem student at the admissions' office, taken to classes if they wish, and/or invited to lunch.
With a little more time, a trial visit can also include an overnight stay (maximum 2 nights). This depends on the number of beds available in each year group. We particularly recommend longer visits for prospective Grade 5 and 6 students. The cost of a residential taster day is €100 per night. This will be deducted from the tuition and boarding fees when the contract is signed for the following school year.
The prerequisite for a visit or taster days is a current application with complete documentation and the prospect of admission to Schule Schloss Salem.
Dates for visits are arranged on an individual basis with the Admissions Office. Visits in all year groups are accompanied by Salem pupils as mentors.
Our Admissions Team will be happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have.
