Evangelical People's School

The Nordic Evangelical Folk Schools as a whole, form a network of residential, adult educational institutions, which offer one, and two year programs of study. They do not grant degrees, which is consistent with the philosophical position that they seek to enlighten and educate, not train students for industry, technology, bureaucracy or academia.

The folk schools are eager to be havens for contemplation and renewal and see their mission as one which inspires, not compels. They are independent, self-governing, and generally unspecialized, encouraging learning for life instead of for an exam. Each school remains free to set up its own curriculum, to admit and maintain students on its own terms, and to hire faculty and plan projects with little or no influence or oversight from the state.
