The Swedish School for Children offers classes for children who have at least one Swedish parent or who hears Swedish on a regular basis. The school has regular classes from age 3 to 17 and a play group for toddlers.

The Swedish School follows the curriculum of the Swedish Department of Education (Skolverket) in Swedish for complementary teaching of Swedish to students abroad, as well as a local curriculum based on the regulations formulated by Skolverket. Instruction is held 30 Saturday mornings a year, with 2.5 hours per session, involving a principal, six teachers and a teaching assistant. The course mainly covers the Swedish language, but also Swedish history, geography, science and social studies.

Saturday Classes

Courses take place every Saturday at the George Mason High School in Falls Church, VA, from 9.30 am to 12 pm.
