German School Fremont

The German School of Fremont is a non-profit educational organization founded in 1963 and located in Fremont.

Our school offers classes for children, youth and adults on Saturday mornings in person for children and youth (9:30am-12pm) and Saturday afternoons online for advanced youth and adults. We also offer a parent and child class for one hour on Saturday mornings for ages 18- months to 3 years old. Our students come from various backgrounds and represent the full spectrum of German language learners. We welcome new and existing members at the start of our fall semester (September-January) or spring semester (January-May).

We proudly encourage our students to also test for the AATG (American Association of Teachers of German), DSD (Deutsches Sprachdiplom) and Advanced Placement exams. By passing the AATG and/or AP exams, students can receive college credits for US universities and colleges for 2, 3 and/or 4 years of German language instruction by passing one or more of these exams. By passing the DSD exams, students have the opportunity to meet the prerequisites for admission to universities in Austria, Germany and Switzerland and study with substantially lower (local) tuition compared to US universities.

Our school community enjoys and celebrates school-wide German language cultural events. Family and friends are welcome to join students for these events: St. Martin’s Lantern parade, Weihnachtsfeier (Christmas party), Fasching/Karneval party, Ostern and Maifest.

Our school is proud to have a newly expanded German language library that is run by our own student and parent volunteers. Students can check out and exchange books at their appropriate reading levels each week to further their learning and compliment their regular class instruction.
