Ger­man Schools Abroad / Deutsche Auslandsschulen

The Cen­tral Agen­cy for Schools Abroad (Zen­tral­stelle für das Aus­landss­chul­we­sen, ZfA) of the Fed­er­al Of­fice of Ad­min­is­tra­tion sup­ports over 1,200 schools world­wide, in­clud­ing more than 140 Ger­man schools abroad, five of them in the USA – main­ly in pub­lic-pri­vate part­ner­ship – and ap­prox­i­mate­ly 1,100 schools in the re­spec­tive ed­u­ca­tion­al sys­tem in which the Ger­man Lan­guage Cer­tifi­cate (DSD) can be ac­quired. Ger­man schools abroad, most­ly con­ceived as in­ter­na­tion­al schools, are open not on­ly to chil­dren of Ger­mans work­ing abroad and wish­ing Ger­man ed­u­ca­tion for their kids. Three out of four pupils are from the re­spec­tive host coun­tries or oth­er cul­tures, thus get­ting the chance to fa­mil­iar­ize them­selves with Ger­many, its cul­ture, and lan­guage.
