EFFECTIVE AS OF TODAY, SCHÄCHTER SPORTS, ONE OF THE LEADING MANAGEMENT COMPANIES IN INTERNATIONAL YOUTH SOCCER AND THE METROPOLITAN INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL (MIS) WITH LOCATIONS IN VIERNHEIM, HEIDELBERG UND MANNHEIM WILL PARTNER TO CONNECT SOCCER AND EDUCATION ON THE HIGHEST POSSIBLE LEVEL.
The Metropolitan International School offers students and athletes from around the globe the unique opportunity to spend one or more semesters at their International Boarding School. This is a great possibility to connect experiencing a new culture and learning a new language with athletical growth on a top level.
„We are very excited to have found an outstanding education partner. The MIS provides our international customers with a curriculum in both, German and English language , based on the famous IBD and Cambridge programs. This will help us to take our unique international portfolio to yet another higher level! We are looking forward to establish a “boarding school of soccer excellence” together with the MIS and to raise the educational and sportive level of many young players around the globe” said Sebastian Schächter, Managing director of Schaechter Sports.
Julia Bentgens, founder of the MIS was also keen to start the new partnership: “With Schächter Sports we have found a new partner with a high expertise. The MIS has come a long way since our founding in 2007. With focusing on soccer we will now add a new feature.”
Peter Harangi: “Our son Aiden is now in his sixth year at the MIS. During this time he had not only the opportunity to experience a great tuition, but also got to know many new friends from around the world. Our initial plan was to move back to the United States after a year or two, but due to the great environment here in Viernheim and the fact that Aiden is now playing at Eintracht Frankfurt’s youth academy, we decided to stay in Germany. It is so exciting to see our boy grow both on and off the field and this would not be possible without the MIS”
All students will live in a renovated boarding school , participate in a highly regarded curriculum and will have the possibility to train in local clubs. MIS will support the athlete with his time management by creating a schedule the balances school and sports – the best opportunity to be successful in both fields!
“My time at the MIS and my life in the boarding school have been so much fun. There is such a warm atmosphere everywhere but that doesn’t keep the teachers and supervisors from pushing us to educations and athletical highs. The combination of most classes being taught in English language and weekly German lessons made it very easy for me to get adjusted in Germany” reported Aiden Harangi when asked about his school.
