We teach the Austrian national curriculum and prepare our pupils for the Austrian Matriculation Examination (AHS Matura). There are eight years of tuition. All pupils follow the same curriculum in Years 1 and 2. In the third year, pupils choose one of two curriculum pathways: Humanities and language focus (Gymnasium) or Science and technology focus (Realgymnasium).

In 2010, BG/BRG Klosterneuburg was authorised as an IB World School. Pupils who have attended our Bilingual Programme in the lower school (Gymnasium stream) are strongly encouraged to join our International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme in the Upper School. Pupils in this class fulfill all the requirements of the Austrian national curriculum (Gymnasium) and are prepared to sit the Austrian Matriculation Exam.
