New Campus in Santa Barbara is Now Open!

1st day of school: January 20th, 2024

We have exciting news!

GASA is pleased to announce the opening of a new school
in Santa Barbara on January 20, 2024

under the directorship of Heike Schirmer, who was instrumental in motivating parents to sign up 42 children, finding teachers and a central location for the school.
This is a significant milestone. The new school is ready
to contribute to cultural exchange and educational opportunities in the Santa Barbara community.

The opening of the school was celebrated
for the first hour with the students making
their own “Schultüten” (school cones) which
were filled with chocolates and other sweets,
and a getting-to-know each other while
munching on a variety of goodies brought
by the parents.

Our president, Rita Reiff, attended the event with congratulations and flowers for Heike Schirmer.

About Us

Multilingualism is the norm in most of the world and we believe that children who speak and write more than one language will be better prepared for life in the 21st century with its growing global economy. The best way to master another language is to start learning at an early age.
