Egtmontgården was established in 1969 with funds from Egmont H. Petersen’s Fond.

The house is primarily for girls in 9 grade, but sometimes also girls from 10 grade and High School. The students at Egmontgården are given a fully furnished single room with locker, work desk, lamp, shelf and sofa. Most students bring a little extra to give their room a personal touch.

The dorm teacher is Julie Holtze. Julie lives with her husband Rasmus Kümmel Holtze and their two daughters, who both are students at Herlufsholm. Julie has a cand.mag. and teaches in English and Danish in High School. Originally, Julie is educated elementary school teacher.
