An Elite Boarding School in a 13th Century Castle
We are Austria’s only institution accredited as both an IB World School and a Cambridge International Education School.
At the heart of our founding values lies a commitment to improve the teaching and learning of a diverse and inclusive community of students by delivering challenging, high quality programmes of international education, bilingual English/German curriculum, and a rich range of extracurricular, creative, and athletic activities.
We raise extraordinarily well-educated individuals, critical thinkers and responsible citizens with a strong moral code and robust soft skills.
SKIS is futuristic in its commitment to a fusion of history and innovation. For example, we practice digital detox, and yet we have all the advanced teaching materials and technology. We shield students from the dangers of cyberbullying, but we teach them in an innovative bilingual way.
The future is about diversity and reconciliation of contrasts, effective management of resources, and social responsibility. This is exactly what our school can be described as.
Students of today are leaders of tomorrow, and SKIS students will lead well.

Schools are about people, lots of students and crowded rooms and corridors. In a castle, however, there’s so much space that I can escape the peers and have some me-time whenever socialization becomes tiring. One can go to the nature, into their room, or just roam around the castle exploring it. As a bit of introvert, I really value this opportunity of privacy.
A boarding school sound like studying all the time, but to me it is about being with my friends all the time. Naturally, academically we are extremely engaged, yet there is no loneliness of doing your homework all by yourself. It’s like a family, always having someone by your side. We truly build lifelong friendships.
I am fascinated by how our school is a fusion of history and innovation. We live in a castle, study art and do ballet. And we also work on digital design solutions, write codes and use cutting-edge equipment. This is so unexpected and so, so fun.
I want to study economics. That’s great that here I can start exploring areas on which I want to focus in college. Sort of preliminary immersion to smoothen the transition to college.
