Boarding Fee at Grenaa Gymnasium

The full boarding fee for a year’s residence at the boarding school in 2022/2023 is DKK 40.500.

The premise on which we make all our decisions and run our school and boarding school.

Denmark has been a welfare state with egalitarian principles since the 1960s. This is why, by far, the majority of all education in the country is tax paid and state governed. The governing principle is free education for all.

The boarding schools, like kindergartens, nurseries and similar institutions are recognized as institutions that some citizens might need access to, but not all. This is why you have to pay approximately 1/3 of the actual cost for the boarding school as a fee. The other 2/3 of the fee are tax paid by Danish tax payers and companies. In periods where the school is closed, are periods, where you cannot have access to the boarding school. These periods do not reduce the amount of the boarding school fee. If your income is low and you are an EU/EEA citizen, you can apply for a fee reduction, so more of your fee is paid by taxes.

EU/EEA citizens have the same rights no matter in which country they live.
