Our education

AcadeMedia covers the entire education ladder, from preschool and compulsory school to upper secondary school and adult education.

AcadeMedia creates the conditions that help people evolve

AcadeMedia creates opportunities for people to develop throughout the educational ladder. We have more than 18 000 employees working across our 700 preschools, primary schools, upper secondary schools and adult education. All children, students and participants will receive a good quality education to achieve their educational goals. Everyone who attend our courses and programmes will also receive the conditions required to reach their full potential.

Preschool is the first step on the educational ladder. It lays the foundation for children’s curiosity and hunger for learning. Our organisation-wide quality work is in evidence in our preschools with systematic tools for regular assessments to ensure quality of our programmes.  

AcadeMedia's preschools are in Pysslingen Preschools, Pysslingen Schools, Vittra, Espira, Joki, Stepke, Kita Luna, Noblaschool and Montessori Mondial.  In total, there are close to 300 preschools within AcadeMedia. Roughly 30  are integrated with a primary school, 104 of them are in Norway (Espira) and 47 of them in Germany (Joki, Stepke, Espira and Kita Luna). Among the preschools there are different pedagogies and specialisations - some have a stronger focus on animals and nature, others work consciously and systematically with playful mathematics, as two examples.

Primary school

AcadeMedia has 75 primary schools, 37 of which have integrated preschools. These preschools and primary schools are classified under the brands Innovita school, Montessori Mondial, Nobla school, Pops Academy, Vittra and Snitz. With the schools' joint profiles, we emphasize pedagogy and ways of working that unite the schools.  

An overview of our schools' brands with links to the respective school websites is provided below. On the Swedish National Agency for Education's website, it is possible to compare primary schools by municipality (in Swedish).  

Using AcadeMedia's common quality model, each school follows each pupil’s knowledge development, and education and teaching is tailored to ensure that each pupil is provided the conditions required to reach their full potential and achieve their educational goals. This process starts in preschool and follows the student throughout the entire AcadeMedia educational ladder up to the higher grades.

Upper secondary school

AcadeMedia has a large number of upper secondary schools with both theoretical and practical orientations. Our schools have a range of programmes and specialisations, including music, design and technology, as well more traditional programmes such as natural science, social sciences and economics.  

This variety of education leads to a diversity of students. Our practical upper secondary schools have vocational programmes for students that want to work in areas including mechanics, healthcare, electrical technology or construction industries. 

AcadeMedia’s NTI upper secondary school specialises in tech, science and IT, and at Rytmus, musicians are able to combine a first-rate music education with university preparatory studies.
