Students without previous knowledge of German will only be accepted until the 3rd day of class. Advanced level students, both children, and adults may join a class at a later time at the discretion of the school administration.

Become involved!

Our school works so well because of the involvement of parents. We have many areas where parents can contribute and help run our school, from working in the library, organizing events as well as helping with administrative and fundraising tasks.

Registration Policies

Your registration will not be processed until the school receives both the registration information and the registration fee, plus the $10.00 membership fee per family.

Please note that $25.00 of your tuition payment represents a non-refundable registration fee.

Tuition Assistance / Payment Plan: The school may be able to provide some help with tuition payments to returning families with exceptional financial needs. If you think you may qualify, please contact us before or during the registration period.
Payment plans may incur an additional administration fee due to the additional invoicing and follow-up required.
