Christelijk Gymnasium Sorghvliet, or Sorghvliet for short, is an independent Protestant gymnasium in The Hague. Sorghvliet is consistently ranked in the top 10 schools in the Netherlands by the influential magazine Elsevier.[1] In late August 2015, the Princess of Orange began her secondary education at Sorghvliet.[2] Her sister, Princess Alexia, has been attending the school since the summer of 2017, as well.[3] Sorghvliet has a long list of notable alumni, including multiple Dutch politicians, writers, athletes, entrepreneurs, members of the Dutch Royal family, and scientists, including one Nobel Prize winner.

There is a long-standing, friendly rivalry between Sorghvliet and another independent gymnasium in The Hague, the Haganum.
