Paderborn was once the oldest academic site in Westphalia. In 1614, the University of Paderborn was founded by the Jesuits but was closed in 1819. It was re-founded in 1972 as Universität-Gesamthochschule and transformed into a university in its own right in 2002. Today, it is attended by about 14,000 students.
Additionally, several theological and private academic institutes exist.
Paderborn has the largest computer museum in the world, the Heinz Nixdorf MuseumsForum. From 2001 to 2005 it hosted the RoboCup German Open.
The local state school is Goerdeler-Gymnasium. There is also a British school John Buchan School, which is located in Sennelager and mainly educates children of British military personnel and the garrison's employees.

Famous quotes containing the word education:
“I am not describing a distant utopia, but the kind of education which must be the great urgent work of our time. By the end of this decade, unless the work is well along, our opportunity will have slipped by.”
—Lyndon Baines Johnson (19081973)
“... education fails in so far as it does not stir in students a sharp awareness of their obligations to society and furnish at least a few guideposts pointing toward the implementation of these obligations.”
—Mary Barnett Gilson (1877?)
“Infants and young children are not just sitting twiddling their thumbs, waiting for their parents to teach them to read and do math. They are expending a vast amount of time and effort in exploring and understanding their immediate world. Healthy education supports and encourages this spontaneous learning.”
—David Elkind (20th century)
