Registration Tips

Full Year Registration To register a student for the full year, first complete the registration for the Fall semester, then register for the Spring semester. If you register before June 30, the tuition will automatically reflect the $100 "early bird" full year savings ($50 for the Flummi class). The registration program will also automatically copy all student information into your Spring-semester registration.
Early Bird Incentive Register by June 30 to save $100 on a full year registration.
Partial Payment Option In addition to the standard option of paying tuition in full when registering, you also have the option to pay a $200 deposit per student per semester at the time of registration. If you choose this option, the remainder of the tuition will be due according to the Important Dates section below.
Late Fees We reserve the right to impose a $50 late fee if full payment has not been received by the due date (see Important Dates section below.)
For full year registrations, if full payment is not received by November 1, we reserve the right to reverse the $100 full year early bird incentive ($50 for Flummi class) if applicable.
Class Times Classes are from 9:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. with a Pause/recess around 11 a.m. Each semester has 15 class sessions.
Because of the low student/teacher ratio, Stamford Adult Beginner classes are only 90 mins long and begin either at 9:30 a.m. or 11:00 a.m.
Flummi class time (Stamford only) is from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
Flummi Classes For Flummi classes (Stamford only) one caregiver needs to be with the child in the classroom at all times.
Family Discounts Family discounts will only be applied automatically if the same email address/account is used for all registrations. Please always use only one account for your family.
Time Saver As a time saver when completing the registration forms, all applicable fields will be prefilled with values from prior semesters and/or registrations of other family members.

Dear GSC Community,

Today, 40 years ago (22 May 1978) I signed the papers of incorporation of our school.  Thus, today, 22 June 2018,  is our 40th  birthday.

Last Saturday, with the help of the administration, parent volunteers, teachers and students who created a time line, an exhibition of their school work  as well as a GSC hymn, we pre-celebrated this birthday.

We had a lovely school event.

The Consul General in New York who could not be present last Saturday asked me to let everyone have his congratulation.  I attach it.

I also attach an article on the history of our school that was written by a freelance journalist who has written about our school before.

I thank you all for your great and dedicated  support of the school in the many years since its creation.   I wish you a wonderful summer.

With kind regards,

Renate Ludanyi, Ph.D.
German School of Connecticut

This weekend’s Steuben Parade is the first highlight of the new school year.

Join us this Saturday parading up Fifth Avenue in Manhattan.

Our Float will assemble on East 70th between Park and Madison Avenue as part of the 7th Division. You can view the full parade line-up here.

Meeting time is around 12:00 noon. Don't forget to bring water and a snack, as it always takes a while until we start moving.

We will have Gummibärchen and GSC business cards to hand out along the parade route. Please wear a GSC T-Shirt or something typical German.

A big Thank You to the Literary Society Foundation for sponsoring the GSC float.


What to do after the parade?

After the parade, we will head back to Stamford and continue the celebration at the Beer Garden at Shippan Landing ( (address: 290 Harbor Drive, Stamford, CT)

The beer garden has Oktoberfest weekend with music, special draft beers and Bavarian-inspired foods. There will be enough space for the younger ones to play and run around.

For anybody traveling back from Manhattan on the train, as the bulk of our group arrives in Stamford, we will arrange for transportation from Stamford Station to Shippan Point.
