September 11, 2021 - June 4, 2022 (see calendar).


Our Saturday Kinderschule will have an online class (90 min) for students from 5th grade up. Interested students also have the possibility for an in-person extension program 9am-12pm). The registration will ask you about your child's age, current grade level and German language background - please elaborate in detail so we can properly place your child. You will be informed about your child's placement before classes start, see below for virtual meeting times and the in-person extension program.

Class Details

The Saturday Middle and High School curriculum is aligned with the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) and our committed faculty members deliver immersion language classes that foster intellectual growth and development of German language skills.  Our classes are also accredited pathways to the German language diploma, the Deutsche Sprachdiplom (DSD), with which students can eventually prove the necessary linguistic skills needed to attend a German university. To learn more about our DSD program, click here.

Class Structure

Students will meet with their teacher and their classmates in 90 minute zoom sessions. In addition, students will receive assignments from their teacher via google classroom.

In-Person Extension Program

We invite students to attend the online class at the DANK Haus where they will be supervised by a staff member during their online class.  Before or after their online class, students will participate in an in-person extension program which will cover subject areas such as mathematics, science or social studies in German. With the in-person extension program, parents may drop off their children at 9am and pick them up at 12:15pm.  Students should bring their own laptops and headphones.
