Sweden's first upper secondary school is situated in a wonderful cultural environment in the centre of Västerås. The school was founded by bishop Johannes Rudbeckius in 1623. Today the school offers academic facilities that are modern, but built in sympathy with the historical and traditional surroundings combined with numerous sporting and cultural activities.

Tradition and social activities go hand in hand creating an environment for top rate academic results.
