School boarding house
The education of young people has been one of the premier causes of the Augustinian Canons' of Novacella since its founding in 1142. The boarding school in its current form has existed since 1971 for middle school students (age approx. 11 to 14) with a branch of the public middle school “Oswald von Wolkenstein”, as well as for high school students attending a variety of schools in Bressanone.
The students are cared for and supported by a team of educators consisting of a boarding school director, a spiritual teacher, and two female and two male education specialists each. The students are offered a variety of religious, fine arts, creative, and sports activities outside of their schools.
The school boarding house can accommodate up to 95 boys aged eleven to nineteen.
