The German Texan Heritage Society is launching its German International School of Texas at Austin Pre-K for children 3-5!

GTHS is moving forward with plans for opening in the 2021 - 2022 academic year!


We are excited to have the opportunity to expand and take our next step with the GTHS German Language program. It’s been an ask from many parents over the years and now with the Barbara & Frank Vondenbaum endowment we have the ability to make this dream a reality. We’ll be holding 3 open houses for the summer in July:

Wednesday, June 30th – 5:15 – 6:15pm
Saturday, July 17th – 3:00 – 4:00pm
Saturday, July 31st – 9:00 – 10:00 am

If you’d like to come and visit with teachers and staff, see the classroom space, and ask any questions you may have, you can sign up for a spot here:
