The German Saturday School of Knoxville is currently enrolling students of all ages and proficiency levels for the 2011-2012 school year. The school was founded by UT faculty in 2004. Since that time, it has served the Knoxville community by offering German classes for children, teenagers, and adults. Classes are held at Sacred Heart Cathedral School on Saturday mornings from 9:30 a.m. to noon. The new school year begins September 17.

The German Saturday School of Knoxville receives partial funding from the German government, and in early 2009 the school was invited to become a member of the “Partner Schools for the Future Network,” (PASCH) a worldwide network of approximately 1,500 partner schools that share a similar curriculum, administer standardized German language exams, and encourage their students to take an interest in matters related to modern Germany and its society. In addition, students enrolled at the German Saturday School of Knoxville have access to special scholarship opportunities that are exclusively offered to students at PASCH German language schools.
