Owners and school board

The foundation Carpe Diem was founded in 1993 with the purpose to start and run a school in the castle of Fredrikshov. Since then, Fredrikshov has managed to become one of the best schools in Sweden, through continuous development of both the school itself and the pedagogy and methods we use.

Carpe Diem is the organiser for Fredrikshovs slotts skola and is responsible for all the activities conducted. The mission of the foundation is to run Fredrikshovs slotts skola as a private school, to safeguard the development of an educational method, mainly within the natural sciences, adapted after the students, and also to support exchanges with schools in other countries.

Fredrikshovs slotts skola is a non-profit organisation. All money is invested back into the school, the education and the students.

The board’s members all have a strong commitment to the school and its interests and together they have a wide range of competencies and experience. Most members are parents of children who attend the school.

The position of board member is not a paid one. An election committee makes sure that the board is complete and consists of suitable candidates.

You are welcome to contact the board if you have any strategical questions regarding the school. Questions concerning for example the education or everyday school life should be sent to the principal or other staff.
