The German School of Connecticut is comprised of dedicated teachers, students, and parents who meet every Saturday morning from 9:30am until 12:15pm during the school year to teach and learn German and support a variety of school activities.
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.
In 1982, with the help of the Zentralstelle für das Auslandsschulwesen (Central Agency for German Schools Abroad), the school introduced the Sprachdiplom to the US. The very first two exams in America were given at our school – and all students passed!
Subsequently a small number of additional German Sprachschulen were allowed to administer these exams as well. Today, many more schools have joined them.
