The Egilsstaðir Junior College

Egilsstadir Junior College (ME) is an upper secondary school founded in 1979. For the first few years, the school was housed in a building built in 1983 that now houses the dormitory. In 2006, an additional building was added, and the school has excellent learning and teaching facilities. The school mostly consists of students 15-20 years of age. They are between 200-300 each year, in addition to 400-600 online learners. The school has a boarding facility which can accommodate about 120 students.

Our students graduate with University Entrance Exam and are qualified to enter universities in Iceland and abroad. Their academic achievement has confirmed that ME is an excellent college.

An integral part of the school is the social life which is organized and conducted by students themselves. An ambitious and active participation in social life along with esteemed academic education is an essential part of the upbringing of young people.
