Fernkurse im Lern-Forum

Die Unsicherheit der Corona-Krise soll sich nicht negativ auf den Übertritt ins Gymnasium auswirken.

Unsere Kurse finden in jedem Fall statt. Wir sind bestens für den Fernunterricht im Distance-Schulzimmer (Distance-Learning) sowie an unseren zentral gelegenen Schulräumen am Stadelhofen eingerichtet. Die Vorkurse für die 5. Klasse sowie die 1. Sek. bilden die Grundlage für einen guten Start ins nächste Schuljahr, um gute Zeugnisnoten zu erreichen. Gut strukturierte Lektionen mit einem umfangreichen Kursorder in Papierform sowie digitalen Übungen und Videos bilden einen abwechslungsreichen Unterricht.

Trial days for Gymnasium prep courses

The trial days take place on Saturday, 4th July 2020 and 22th of August 2020.

You do not need to register early. We look forward to meeting you.

Course material

For each course, we have compiled a comprehensive Lern-Forum course binder. These binders are continuously revised and always up to date with the latest subject knowledge.

Each student has their own binder with all exercises and the pertinent solutions printed on paper. Upon completion of the course, the student retains this binder, so that the student may continue to study and practice the material contained within.

Find your course

Find the appropriate course for your child. We do not offer private tutoring.


Theoretical knowledge is elucidated through pertinent examples. Schoolwork focusses on repetition as well as a deepening of understanding. We apply what has been learnt to practical experiences so that students may gain confidence in the subject. At the same time, students learn how to explain their work in order to be prepared for the oral exams (from 2013 onwards only for secondary students).

Students receive a course folder for each course. This folder contains plenty of exercises as well as solutions put together according to current didactic principles.


In the language subjects, grammar as well as oral skills are taught through relevant examples and exercises.

Participation in a course is limited to 8 students so that teachers can focus their attention on the individual students.


In the subject of mathematics, mathematical thinking is encouraged through modern didactic methods so that students are able to solve difficult problems on their own.

Essay training

It is important for students to be able to express themselves in written form. In the Gymnasium prep course, therefore, we focus heavily on the process of essay writing. All essays are carefully marked and corrected.

Number of essays corrected during the course:

Primary level

  • 4 essays (18-day course)
  • 3 essays (16-day course)
  • 2 essays (14-day course)
  • 1 essay (10-day course)

Secondary level

  • 3 essays (18-day course)
  • 2 essays (14-day course)
  • 1 essay (10-day course)


This year's courses start in September and end in March 2021.

(From examination year 2021 the oral examination for learners at secondary schools is to be dropped.)

Simulation test

Students receive in-depth progress reports with recommendations for obtaining their objectives.

The exams are then corrected by experienced examiners wholly unknown to the students. Students, and in particular their parents, are often “shocked” by the results. We then discuss these results and the students are made aware of the difficulties of the exam situation. This leads to a very high success rate in the real exams.

Exam year 2021 - no changes

In the future, all schools will have the same requirements. All entrance exams will be comprised of two halves: the test in German and maths will count for half, and the incoming marks will count for the other half. The government announced this on Thursday.

For entry into Gymnasium (long- or short-track), the average of the test and incoming marks must be at least 4.75. For the vocational schools, the required average is 4.5.

The new regulations will be implemented for the Gymnasiums, the business schools, the secondary level II schools, and the vocational schools in March of 2021. For the IT schools, the new system will begin in October of 2020.
