A Christian Upper Secondary School
Our goal is to be an inclusive Christian upper secondary school, a place which cares for all the different needs of the individual, and a place of mental and spiritual development. We offer a wholesome and safe learning environment, with room for personal development, progress and well-being. While Danielsen Videregående Skole is a school with long traditions, we also wish to provide education with a view to the future.
We want to be a school were young people thrive – both academically, personally and spiritually in the light of God’s love.
Danielsen Videregående Skole offers an education in both General Studies and Healthcare, Childhood and Youth Development. Students can also obtain a general university and college admission certification by continuing with the supplementary course after two years of vocational studies.
A Christian School
The Schools is based on a Christian world view, with a Christian perspective on human life. We wish to offer our students an academically sound education, while at the same time letting them experience the Christian faith during their day-to-day lessons and through other activities at school. Occasionally, the whole school will meet up for a social gathering. At Danielsen, Christianity is a core subject for all students at level VG1 and VG2. The school wishes to communicate a Christian set of values, but is also respectful of the individual’s right to his or her own faith and convictions. We see it as important that the word of God is allowed to shine through in everyday life, which is why we start every school day with a short devotional. We see each individual human being as precious, and we wish to provide the love, care and support that he or she needs. Together, we wish to create an inclusive community which stimulates the students both academically and spiritually.
The logo of Danielsen Videregående Skole is inspired by Daniel the Prophet. The lions in our logo are there to remind us of when God rescued Daniel from the lions’ den and from the king’s death warrant.
Danielsen Videregående Skole is part of the Egill Danielsen Foundation, established in 1932. The foundation council is appointed by the Norwegian Lutheran Mission and the Norwegian Home Mission Society.
