Viborg Katedralskole is one of Denmark's oldest educational institutions with a history dating back more than 900 years. Over the years the school has been located in different places in Viborg, but since 1926 it has been situated in the beautiful and listed building on Gl. Skivevej. The school has been continuously modernized and the neoclassical architecture now houses a modern school, fully equipped with modern classrooms. The school houses more than 1100 students, of these about 100 international, and more than 100 teachers.


At Viborg Katedralskole we make a determined effort to prepare our students for higher education. We emphasize academic skills in both subjects and cross-curricular work. Solid academic insight, the mastery of different study methods and the acquisition of different study skills are key values. The school is consistently among the best-performing Danish upper secondary schools and the ambition remains to give our students the best possible foundation for further education. This is only possible through the ability to constantly adapt to the needs of both society and the changing generations of young people passing through our doors.

One tangible result of our continuous effort to provide the best in education that the school has been invited into The Guide to Excellence from Cambridge University. Now being a part of the global IB community of schools is the result of hard work and a determination to keep evolving, challenging ourselves and equip our students to be active participants in local and global communities.
