About Us

The Gorchakov School is a is a private boarding school for boys in St. Petersburg, with a student enrollment of approximately 45 students. Our mission is to create a paradigm for the formation of private educational institutions which aim to positively influence Russian society. 

The Gorchakov School was conceived as, and strives to be, a contemporary rendering of the Tsarskoe Selo Lyceum. The Tsarskoe Selo Lyceum was established in Russia as a response to the needs of its time, during which there were strong beliefs in the possibility of societal transformation. For one hundred years the Lyceum prepared numerous, highly educated leaders in the spheres of culture, government, and the military, who played important roles in Russian history. The well-known events of the Revolution, however, interrupted the work of the Lyceum. Only now, about one hundred years later, has the revival of the Lyceum's traditions become possible. We hope the graduates of Gorchakov will carry these traditions forward.

We regard education as one of the most important aspects of a child's education and rearing and admit only those children from families which share this belief and have high expectations for their children's education.
