Ernst-Kalkul Private Gymnasium is one of the traditional and oldest secondary boarding schools in Bonn. In 1880, Ernst Kalkul (1849-1918) from Remscheid, having gained experience as a teacher in private schools in England and France, decided to open his own school for boys in Oberkassel near Bonn, then the “Institute of Kalkul”. In her speech on the occasion of the school's 125th anniversary on 27 September 2005, Bonn Mayor Berbel Dieckmann emphasized the importance of today's Ernst-Kalkuhl-Gymnasium for the city of Bonn. It also praised the special educational approach of the school, which, based on 125 years of experience, is able to set educational emphasis in the field of holistic pedagogy. With the creation of a special “day school and boarding class” (grades 5-9) in the school's long history since the 2005/06 academic year, completely new directions have been opened that take special account of today's social and educational needs of students.

Erprobungsstufe - grades 5-6

In grades 5-6, children are introduced to the methods and possibilities of teaching at the gymnasium. In addition to acquiring specialized knowledge, they master teaching techniques. Personal development, communication in the classroom, the school community is an important area of educational work. In grades 5-6, children work weekly with the Lions Quest Growing up program.

Mittelstufe - grades 7-9

In grades 7-9, day school and boarding school students study together. The small number of students in each class provides effective support and personal care for young people. The boarding school teachers are members of a team of class teachers and subject teachers. The task of the boarding school educators includes constant contact with teachers and parents of students.

The daily Silentium is at the core of the 5th to 9th grade boarding school, providing professional support that goes beyond simple homework and is at the center of parenting interests.

A varied daily leisure, as well as sports activities (rowing in the club, sailing, tennis), are an indispensable addition to school studies.

Classes in grades 7-9 are focused on deepening technical and content-related knowledge, developing methodological skills, obtaining additional key qualifications in the field of personal / social competence. Systematic, science-oriented teaching combined with the expansion of methodological, social and personal skills are some of the key points in this final section of schooling that prepares students for Abitur exams, study and work.
