Founding of the abbey, probably also together with a school
The earliest documentation of a school is a list of the names of a schoolmaster and students.
One of them was to stay: Rupert Maulrapp sent his sons from Kastelruth to the abbey. The cleverer of the two was to stay there.
Graf Leonhard von Görz
The reputation of the school in Neustift was such that even Count Leonhard von Görz sent his nephew there.
In this year the school had 25 students
Dissolution of the monastery, and with it the school, by the Bavarians.
Re-establishment of the monastery
Re-establishment of the monastery, which then took over the state grammar school in Brixen. This was also where the canonized Josef Freinademetz went to school.
The monastery school was attended every year by around 20 students
Opening of the new institute building (choristers’ institute)
Closing of the Augustinian grammar school in Brixen by the Faschist regime

Closing of the monastery’s own school after the invasion of the German army.
Establishment of a commercially oriented secondary school (‘Bürgerschule’)
A juvenate, a private humanistic grammar school, was also opened.
Students from 11-14
Closing of the private schools in Neustift. They were replaced by a school boarding house for students from 11-14, together with a branch of a Brixen school for this age group. Older students were also accepted at the boarding house.
From this date on the school was a branch of the ‘Michael Pacher’ secondary school.
After six years the ‘Michael Pacher’ became the ‘Arthur March’ secondary school and was known by this name until 1996.

The Neustift school then became a branch of the ‘Oswald von Wolkenstein’ secondary school. This minnesinger was incidentally a beneficiary at the abbey.
