A meaningful break

Would you like to take a break, travel the world, and learn about a different culture?

Spend half a year or even a whole year in Viborg, Denmark, doing sports and expanding your horizons – personally as well as geographically. The folk high school called "The Academy of Physical Education in Viborg" is situated in Denmark, Scandinavia.

You will experience another culture, meet new people, get new friends and get a break from regular school activities, while learnæing other important life-skills.

"Living abroad is not just about making new friends and collecting new pictures. It is to feel that your intentions are changing, to change ideas, to put into practice, to be open minded, to accept challenges."
- Extract from Michele Carbinattos (Brasil) farewell-poem, 2007
