An After-School Program for children K to 10th grade

  • We offer a once-per-week after-school German language program for children K to 10th grade. No prior German knowledge is necessary.

  • We cater to a diverse and multicultural clientele and have neither religious nor political affiliation.

  • Our tuition is very affordable.

  • German-American School is the only German language after-school program accredited by the NY State Board of Regents since 1911.

  • Your child will graduate with a NY State Regents diploma, recognized by High Schools and NY State Colleges.

  • No German background? No problem. If you are interested in German culture and language – this is the place.

Better still, the German-American School is the only German language program accredited by the New York State Board of Regents. So your child can graduate with a diploma which is recognized in Germany.
