Nothing connects us to a country more than its language. Speaking German can help you strengthen that connection while enhancing travel, education, and business horizons. Established in 1978, the German School of Connecticut (GSC) – the only professional German Saturday School in CT – provides a high-quality German education program for over 350 children and adults. At GSC, students at all levels learn German language along with German, Austrian, and Swiss cultures Saturday mornings during the academic year.

CT Act concerning High School Credit for Private World Language Courses

As of July 1, 2008, Connecticut students studying World languages in community schools such as the German School of Connecticut (GSC) are eligible to receive high school foreign language credit for their studies. This is a real benefit to the students, who put in many hours of study to master reading, speaking, and writing skills, as well as cultural information. Public Act No. 08-138. (http://www.cga.ct.gov/2008/ACT/PA/2008PA-00138-R00HB-05820-PA.htm)

The German School of Connecticut is a private, non-profit school with branches in Stamford and West Hartford, CT and has an enrollment of over 350 students. A professional teaching staff, most of whom are native German speakers, provide three contact hours on each of thirty Saturdays per year. The school was the first German language school in the United States to be selected by the State Department of the German Government to administer the official Sprachdiplom I and II examinations. These exams, which are a pre-requisite to university matriculation in Germany, test the equivalence of ten and twelve years of German language study. The German School of Connecticut receives support from the German government, as well as local businesses and donors. In 2009, the school became one of the 66 US Partner Schools with Germany.
