Schule Schloss Salem was founded in 1920 by Prince Max von Baden, the last Reichschancellor and Kurt Hahn, a politician and pedagogue. The school is part of the German boarding school tradition that combines education and upbringing. The principles of Kurt Hahn's educational reform are those of the Schule Schloss Salem today - the means to achieve this reform have been continually developed within daily school life since that time. Through the many and varied activities, young people in Salem boarding school have opportunities to develop social and personal forms of behaviour that enable them to stand up for what they think is right, even at the cost of criticism for doing so.

Salem's three campuses are located in Hohenfels (Lower School), Salem (Middle School), and Salem College (Upper School). Hohenfels Castle, first mentioned in 1292, is picturesquely situated eight kilometers from Lake Constance. The former Cistercian Abbey, Salem Castle lies in the Salem Valley amidst orchards and vineyards 12 kilometers from Lake Constance. Salem International College, lies on the northern slope of Lake Constance near Überlingen, close enough to the school’s harbour to be reached on foot. On the three campuses, the rules and habits of daily routine are conceived with respect to the age group concerned. 120 of the boarders are IB/pre-IB students, and the remainder are scholars in the German section, the Abitur.

Salem is a state-accredited, independent, non-profit organization. It belongs to the Vereinigung Deutscher Landerziehungsheime and to the Round Square Conference. United States ties are maintained with The Athenian School in California, and Choate Rosemary Hall and The Loomis Chaffee School in Connecticut.
