We are pleased to once again offer an after school program together with North Star Academy in Redwood City for the Fall 2020 semester. This program is open to students from neighboring schools as well!

Due to current local and state guidelines, our program will be offered online via Zoom.

Both of our classes have been canceled due to low enrollment. We plan to offer these classes again in the spring.

Our Program is called “Hands on German”. This program is a full immersion program for students grade 3-8 using both hands on projects as well as books and games to learn German.

We will be offering both a Level 1 and Level 2 class during the Fall session. Level 1 is for beginners, with no prior knowledge of German. Level 2, is for students who have been part of our after school program or have a previous knowledge of German.

The Fall Session consists of 13 1-hour classes from September through December. Students of all levels may enroll at this time. The 13 class session costs $275 per student. The class calendar an be found on our website and payment is due by the first day of class.
