Open Gate is one of the best rated grammar schools in the Czech Republic. A large number of its graduates pursue higher education at the world’s best universities.

Thanks to financial assistance provided by The Kellner Family Foundation, Open Gate also accepts children who, though motivated and achieving excellent academic results, would be barred by their families’ financial circumstances from developing their talents to the fullest. Approximately half of all students receive grants; in the current school year 2014/2015, 96 students have received grants totaling some CZK 50 million.

The procedure for admission to the first year of the Open Gate eight-year grammar school for the 2015/2016 school year will take place at the school in Babice near Prague on April 22 and 23, 2015. The school will accept fifth-year elementary school students.

Notes for editors:
The Kellner Family Foundation, a family foundation of Mrs. Renáta Kellnerová and Mr. Petr Kellner, was set up in 2009 with a view to promoting mainly long-term educational projects intended for elementary school students and teachers, students of secondary schools and higher education institutions, and also postgraduates. It seeks out and supports academically gifted children and young people who grow up in environments that impede or prevent their access to high-quality educations. The Foundation also provides grants to Czech scientists and research teams. More at
