Boarding schools

30 million people in Germany suffer from allergies, which corresponds to about one third of the population. This figure also applies to students. Untreated allergic rhinitis in students can lead to a 30% decrease in performance. This can result in test scores that are lower by up to an entire grade point.

The aim of the ECARF Seal for allergy-friendly boarding schools is to improve the school environment for students with allergies by ensuring that the needs of allergy sufferers are addressed.

The ECARF Seal of Quality certifies that a boarding school has made uncomplicated and practical adjustments to accommodate students with allergies. Although public areas such as an auditorium or dining room can never be completely allergy-free, compliance with the ECARF criteria significantly improves the environment and quality of life for students with allergies.
