Welcome to the German Language School Conference website!
Founded in 1977, the German Language School Conference (GLSC) is the national umbrella organization for private German language schools in North America, linking member schools within a central organization for information and support. Our primary goal is to further the language and culture of German-speaking countries. We provide our member schools a forum for pedagogical, administrative, and social issues. We offer teachers continuous education and create a setting for sharing ideas and professional experiences to enhance the education of their students, covering preschool through high school and adults.
The GLSC enjoys the support of the German government (Bundesverwaltungsamt), the Verein für deutsche Kulturbeziehungen im Ausland (VDA), the German Embassy in Washington and its affiliated Consulates, and is an associated member of the Weltverband Deutscher Auslandsschulen (WDA) and represents its member schools.

In the age of globalization, when every culture can achieve its prominence in a multicultural society, the maintenance of heritage languages and cultures becomes of ever greater significance. By providing the opportunity for the younger generation language, we accomplish the noble mission of maintaining the centuries-old cultural traditions.
