Adalbert Raps School

As a vocational upper secondary school, the Adalbert Raps School is aimed at students with intermediate qualifications. Divided into the Fachoberschule (FOS) and the Berufsoberschule (BOS), it prepares students for the Fachabitur in different forms. The school is named after Adalbert Raps, the founder of the Kulmbach-based company RAPS GmbH & Co. KG. The idea for the name developed from a close connection between the former headmaster Rudolf Stosch and the RAPS company.

Since its founding in 1971, students have been able to attend a specialised upper secondary school in three tracks or, after vocational training, a vocational upper secondary school in two tracks. Preliminary courses and classes are also offered in order to obtain the intermediate school-leaving certificate. Students can choose between the following subjects: social work, business and administration, and technology. In the 11th grade, they also complete internships that prepare them for working life and give them an insight into possible occupational fields.

Adalbert Raps Baccalaureate Award and FOSS Project

The vocational upper secondary school offers two specialisations: technology and business and administration. Both types of school lead to a specialised baccalaureate (Fachabitur) and, via the 13th grade (also offered), to a specialised university entrance qualification or a general university entrance qualification. And because so much hard work needs to be rewarded, the Adalbert-Raps-Stiftung offers a prize for graduates every year.

The Foundation is also involved in the Future Online Social School Project (FOSSP): eleventh graders from the Adalbert Raps Technical High School teach computer skills to people with disabilities as well as children and help them use the internet.
