German-American School

German-American School has been teaching German to children since l892. In the late l9th century the school’s students came from German immigrant community and the school’s purpose was to teach German literature, history, and culture (in German) to the children of German immigrants.

German-American School was incorporated in l9ll by the Regents of the University of the State of New York. Therefore, our German-language program is recognized by NY State and the language program of German-American School is designed to lead the students toward successful completion of the New York State Three-Year Comprehensive Regents in German. Our students take the exam at the conclusion of our program (after eight years). Once the Regents Exam is passed the student can be awarded three language credits from the students’ High School.
