2023/2024 Registration

Virtual Open House

Please join us on Wednesday, April 12, 2023, 7:00-8:00 PM via this link for our virtual open house. We will give an update on our plans for the upcoming school year and the registration process.

Registration will take place during the following time frames: 

Registration for current families (including new siblings):March 25 – April 22, 2023 
Invoice date for current families:April 23, 2023

Preference for Returning Students

We guarantee classroom space for returning students who register and pay by May 7, 2023. We do our best to accommodate all returning families, but cannot guarantee spaces for siblings (in the majority of cases this is not a problem). Please note that siblings have priority over students in new families. Registration will be open at 10am online on dates listed above only. Please register as early as possible as this will help the registration team with ensuring a smooth placement process.


All children entering our preschool class must be 4 years old by August 31, 2023 and toilet trained. It is recommended that they have previous preschool, playgroup or day-care experience. Parents of preschool applicants need to show their child’s birth certificate or passport on the FIRST day of school as proof that the child meets the age requirements. Failing to provide proof of age will result in the loss of the place in the preschool program at the German Saturday School Boston. Tuition will be refunded according to our refund policy.

Sprachdiplom DSD I und DSD II Students

If your child wishes to continue their studies of German beyond 9th grade next year, you need to register your child by April 1. Acceptance of registered students for a Sprachdiplom class will be contingent on a teacher recommendation (you should have received a recent communication from the principal explaining the requirements for these classes). If it turns out that a student cannot be accepted to a Sprachdiplom class, the tuition payment will be reimbursed upon request (for other refund policy, see below). Current DSD II Students who are continuing with their DSD II program for their second year (“12th grade”) will only need to pay reduced tuition.


If your child is on an Individualized Education Program (IEP) in his or her regular school, please indicate this on your online enrollment form under your child’s “Applications” tab. Also, please provide the principal with a copy of the IEP documentation before the beginning of the school year.


Tuition varies by grade level and the number of children participating in a family. Financial aid is available on a needs basis. See Tuition Schedule.

Refund Policy

Withdrawals must be submitted to the registrar in writing: registrar@gssb.org. Tuition (minus any applicable additional and transaction fees) will be refunded as follows:

Withdrawal prior August 1, 2022:100% of the tuition
Withdrawal prior 2nd day of school: 75% of the tuition
Withdrawal prior 3rd day of school:   50% refund
Withdrawal after 3rd day of school:    no refund                      

Late fees, registration fees and Payment Plan fees are non-refundable. The non-participation fee, if paid, is refundable. If a student is expelled from school due to a disciplinary incident tuition will not be refunded.
