The German Language School Conference (GLSC) is the national umbrella organization for private German language schools in the United States. Our member schools, which operate mostly on Saturdays, serve children from preschool through high school and adults.

Our organization projects a positive image of the language and culture of the German-speaking countries and represents our member schools and their interests. We provide a forum for pedagogical, administrative, legal, social and other issues for our member schools. We offer our teachers continuous education and create a setting for sharing pedagogical ideas and professional experiences.

The GLSC enjoys the support of the German government (Bundesverwaltungsamt/Central Agency for Schools Abroad, the German Language Consultants in the US), the Verein für deutsche Kulturbeziehungen im Ausland (VDA), the German Embassy in Washington and its affiliated Consulates, the Literary Society Foundation, Mercedes-Benz, and many others. It is an associated member of the Weltverband Deutscher Auslandsschulen (WDA) and represents its member schools. F. Undütsch GmbH is an underwriter of the Annual Conference.
