Summary/Abstract: The present study refers to the organization, the running and the development of the high school system in the Bucovina under Habsburg rule. As far as the secondary education system for girls was concerned, the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th, proved to be a favorable timespan. During this period 8 high schools for girls have been inaugurated in Bucovina. The Habsburgs’ policy promoting the cultural emancipation of all nations, consisted in the establishment of German as teaching language to every high schools, as well as the introduction of the indigenous languages of the province (i.e. Romanian and Ruthenian) for the teaching of some subjects, such as: religion, history, Romanian and Ruthenian. Being attended by pupils with different ethnic and religious background, the high-schools in Bucovina can be regarded as models of tolerance and intercultural dialogue. Thus, they contributed to the enhancement of the girls’ education and their future enrolment within the university system.
