Head of School Welcome


School closed until May 1, 2020 - COVID-19

Dear AvH Community,

No one could have guessed the extent of the crisis we are currently experiencing and of which we do not know how it will further develop. In a situation like this, it is important to remain calm, but to act quickly and deliberately. We rely on a great AvH school family. Everyone has signalled and shown us that we will all work through the coming weeks together.

We thank all our educators and teachers for having prepared for e-learning with exemplary dedication. We also thank our parents who support us and immediately understood that we can only master this situation together. And for you, dear students, these are above all circumstances in which you can show what you are made of. You can help each other, but also your parents and your families.

We know that the AvH community is excellently positioned and capable of doing so. Stay healthy!

Dr. Martin Braun

International School – Three Languages – Two School Diplomas

AvH is a member of a network of over 140 German schools abroad. In 2012, we were awarded the official “Excellent School Abroad” seal of approval by the German government. We are recognized by the Ministère de l’Éducation et de l’Enseignement supérieur du Québec. Therefore, we can offer two degrees: the internationally respected and globally recognized German International baccalauréat (Abitur), which allows a seamless transition to university studies, as well as the Quebec Secondary School Diploma, which leads to CEGEP. Our school’s academic success is clearly reflected in the fact that our graduates go on to the world’s leading universities.

Since its founding in 1980, AvH has been educating students of German, Canadian and international origin. Our graduates acquire a wide range of skills and competencies and they master three languages: German, French and English. All this prepares them especially well for the challenges of our global world.
