Academic Afterschool

Our Academic Afterschool Program is based on a Saturday school/Teilzeitschule model and available to school-aged children (Kindergarten-High School) Mondays and Tuesdays. We also offer a playgroup for younger, pre-school aged children on Mondays. 

SAGA Academic Program

The school-aged academic programs are 32 weeks long and are designed to build upon German language skills developed in the home or through SAGA’s immersion program. Academic After School classes will develop German literacy with the goal of building skills and preparing our students for German AP Classes and language competency when traveling or working abroad. Classes start September 11/12, 2023.

SAGA will offer class levels, in various formats. Most classes will be in person, but SAGA is partnering with the Eastside German Language School (EGLS) to offer online-only classes. See the schedule for more details.

Tuition Payment/Enrollment Agreement

Please see registration for information regarding fees, including the early bird discount and "third student discount". Classes are held weekly with the exception of Thanksgiving week, Winter Break, Mid-Winter Break, Spring Break, and National Holidays (no Tuesday class following a Monday holiday).

Preschool Playgroup

The Preschool Playgroup is open to children 2.5 to 5 years of age (designed for preschool through prek) and introduces art, music, games, and food in a fun and relaxed German-language environment. The Playgroup is a drop-off program, so it is a great way for younger children to start building independence! This group meets every Monday afternoon, 4:00pm - 6:15pm from September through June, with the exception of major holidays and school closures. The playgroup is an ongoing session with open enrollment. Tuition will be prorated if participants join later in the year. Please check the registration form for costs and enrollment information. Note: Children may not participate in the playgroup on the same day that they attend SAGA.
