Evangelical Folk High School of Kitee 


Evangelical Folk High School of Kitee is located in the Eastern Finland, about 60 km south of Joensuu and about 80 km east of Savonlinna. The school offers a broad range of education for adults. We have e.g. Finnish language courses for immigrants, basic school and vocational education for adults as well as summer camps for children or elderly people. There are about 200 students attending the long courses each year and about 2500 students attending the short courses. Most of the short courses are held in summertime, so our school has activities year-round. The contents of the short courses are e.g. international science camps, language courses, sports and well-being and social studies.
