The German Language School Conference (GLSC) is the national umbrella organization for private German language schools in the United States.
Founded in 1978, the German Language School Conference (GLSC) is the only national organization dedicated to the needs of community-based German language schools in the United States. Our mission is to link member schools with a central organization for information and support. We assist in the establishment of new language schools and provide a forum for sharing experiences and advice.
The GLSC serves as a resource to language schools for best practices, administrative information and policies to further our common goals of maintaining and fostering the language and culture of German speaking countries in the US. We represent the interests of our member schools to German and US government agencies, professional organizations and other stakeholders.
The GLSC offers networking opportunities for educators and administrators. We organize a yearly professional development conference in cooperation with the German Consulate General in New York, which is geared to the special concerns of German language schools.
Each spring, we offer a Writing Contest (Schreibwettbewerb) with the winning entries presented at the conference.
