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.

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.
