Aarhus Academy for Global Education (AAGE) – the only IB Candidate Primary and Middle School west of Storebælt
AAGE is a product of the fact that the business community in Aarhus expects a significant increase in the number of international employees in the coming years. Moreover, it is an acknowledgement that quality international schooling, a globally transferable education and the opportunity to establish a stable life in Denmark are key to integrating international families into the Aarhus area.

As of August 2012, AAGE has implemented and offered an IB education, with English as the primary instructional language, for students from 3-16 years of age. Educators at AAGE aim at develop each student to their full potential by building a stimulating, cultural diversity, and educational environment. The aim of all IB programmes is to develop internationally minded people who, recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world.
As of November 2011, AAGE has offered an international preschool and kindergarten, which focuses on providing children with a well-rounded, international programme and prepares them to enter the IB system.
