At AMADEUS Vienna we are committed to healthy and balanced lifestyles for our students and staff. We promote personal health and safety in all areas of school and boarding life. Boarding staff monitor, educate and coach the boarders in the following areas:
Boarding students are provided with 6 meals per day – breakfast, morning snack, lunch, afternoon snack, dinner and evening snack. We have a rotating breakfast menu and hot meals every evening. Boarding kitchens are always well stocked with fresh fruit, nuts and dried fruit, and breads and jams that are available at all times. On weekends they also have the option of preparing meals for themselves if they enjoy cooking. All of our food is catered by the AV chefs, who prepare a variety of fresh, seasonal Austrian and international dishes on site. We accommodate most special food requirements.
Academic success and time-management
With the help of the house parents and other live-in staff, the academic status of students is monitored and effective study habits are encouraged and developed. Another key to success and a balanced life style is effective time management. This often is a challenge for teenagers and young adults, therefore the Boarding Team provides coaching sessions and pays close attention to time-management skills.
All boarding students have to attend study hall. This is a mandatory study time held by AV teachers four times per week. Students receive support in all subject areas, other Middle Years and Diploma Programme (such as Personal Projects and CAS projects) requirements. All academic tasks and individual progress is tracked through the platform ManageBac. All AV students and staff, as well as parents have access to ManageBac.
Boarding staff and teachers also support our boarders with their extra-curricular activities and projects.
Boarding students receive regular briefings and training about personal safety:
The physical and emotional well-being of boarding students takes the highest priority for the boarding teams. We are aware that boarding is a new experience for many of our students, and our staff members strive to make the AV Boarding Houses a “home away from home”. We support our boarders in and share all moments of joy and challenge with them:
Parents are informed about their child’s life in boarding through regular newsletters, school reports, the website and personal emails. In case of any urgent matters, illness, inappropriate behaviour or other unforeseen incidents, parents will be informed immediately. Families are also welcome to visit. We recommend that parents of boarders visit during agreed weekends and short school holidays to avoid disrupting school life.
We welcome the opportunity for prospective students and their families to visit AMADEUS Vienna and learn more about our unique programme and inspiring school environment.
