Folk High School
Since 1954

We have over 60 years of proud tradition of motivating and developing people to be followers of Jesus, equipped to impact their world through God's love and power.

our values


We are a school of inclusiveness and respect, where diversity is seen as a strength; a place where authority and meeting times are respected. Based on God's love, we will avoid negative discrimination and inconsiderate behavior, but work to ensure that people and property are treated with care.


We are a school where everyone lives together in a God-centered community, feeling they belong; a place of team spirit and service, where diverse personalities and nationalities are integrated. We do not want anyone to be disengaged, but for everyone to commit and allow others to come close, so that even weakness can become strength.


We are a school of openness, possibility thinkers, and we value the presence of God; a place of authenticity and intimacy, where we dare to build relationships and give responsibility. We will avoid hidden agendas and work to connect words and lives.


We are a school where everyone has ownership. A place of hospitality and quality, where everyone, with God's help, takes responsibility for themselves and contributes to the whole, while being encouraged to change.


At Mariager Højskole we have six words that express what we want. They come from the "mission statement", which says:

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. [formation and discipleship] And I am with you always, to the end of the age. [ministry and commitment]

(Matt. 28:18-20)

Folk & Missional

Here you will encounter both the hymnbook and modern worship, political debates, and reflective sermons, and you will meet a school that is both local and global, cultural, and Church-based.

Formation & Discipleship

At the college, we create a space where you can develop as a whole person, put your faith into words, and let Jesus Christ define your life.

Commitment & Service

It is our dream that you will engage in local and global challenges and take co-responsibility for a sustainable future. We dream of seeing your God-given calling unfold in the church and your world.
