German School of Connecticut

Stamford and West Hartford, CT

The German School of Connecticut (GSC), celebrating its 40th year!

Founded in 1978, the school is a Non-Profit organization. All tuition proceeds and funds are used to teach and maintain the German language and culture, and to create the most positive environment in which to do so.

GSC is a Saturday school offering a dual-track curriculum for non-native beginners, and native or near-fluent speakers. Classes are held on two campuses (Stamford and West Hartford), ranging from pre-school through high school and adult. Students learn, improve and maintain German language skills while celebrating German, Austrian and Swiss cultures.

GSC prepares its students for the AATG high school exams, the NY State Regents, the Advanced Placements tests, and Sprachdiplom I and II.  The Sprachdiplom I and II examinations test 10 and 12 years of spoken and written German, including German culture, history and literature. These examinations satisfy the German government’s language requirements for matriculation at a German university.

GSC also embodies an international parent community: those from German-speaking countries are joined by U.S. and other international parents. All appreciate the services of the school, and the transnational atmosphere.

GSC is a member of the German Language School Conference (GLSC) and the American Association of Teachers of German (AATG). Our programs are recognized by the Federal Republic of Germany’s Foreign Office’s Schools Abroad Program (ZfA) and are among the selected Schulen Partner der Zukunft (Partner School of the Future).
