Our FALL schedule is here and it's easier than ever to register
You knew it was coming eventually…well, here it is. We had to increase our class prices to cover our daily and ongoing operational and supply costs.

NOTE about our new sign up system: During sign up, you as our customer will share information with a third party. In this case, it goes through stripe, our online payment provider. We don’t see any of the credit card information on our end. It’s all encrypted. Some payment info is stored because some providers offer payment plans where a card needs to be charged each month on a recurring basis. In that case the cc info needs to be on file.
To sign up, you as the customer need to put in your email and name so that GTHS has that information. That then gives you access to your own account on the back end where you can check what classes you are signed up for or you can update information such as caregiver name, phone number or anything else that could be important for you to share with GTHS. Sawyer does not do anything with that information and they also don’t email any of our customers.
The German Saturday School of Austin offers fun and engaging language instruction for kids and teens. These classes, called Samstagsschule, are designed for children ages 3 – 13 and meet Saturday mornings in downtown Austin. Two 12-week sessions are offered each year, beginning in January (spring session) and September (fall session), along with shorter summer sessions. Both spring and fall semester classes run Saturdays from 9:30 to 11:30 am. (11:45-1:45 will be opened if earlier classes fill up)
Classes Offered: Classes are divided by age group. Depending on enrollment, some classes may be split into two groups: beginners and intermediate/advanced.
Vorschule (ages 3-5) Grundschule (ages 6-8) Mittelschule (ages 9-13)
Our teaching staff consists of native German speakers experienced in tutoring children and German teachers from local public schools. Lessons focus on comprehension and speaking for all age groups.
