Studying at Sundsgården is different from studying in the conventional school. Folk High School is a school form of its own where you are be treated as an adult and where you are expected to take responsibility for your studies. You meet teachers who care about more than your academic results. Here, you also have the liberty and possibility to grow as a person. You are accepted as the person you really are.
Sundsgården is a movement-based Folk High School, where the highest executive level is the organization Sundsgården Folk High School, which in turn appoints the school board. Sundsgården has Christian social values and we work actively with our responsibility for a socially and ecologically sustainable future.
