The Czech School of California is dedicated to offering children and adults of all ages and origins throughout the Bay Area a comprehensive education in the Czech language, history, geography and culture.
The Czech School of California (“CSC” or the “School”) is a tax-exempt 501 (c)(3) charitable organization dedicated to offering children and adults of all ages and origins throughout the Bay Area a comprehensive education in the Czech language, history, geography and culture.
The CSC officially opened its doors to students in 2012 at a community center in Palo Alto. Scores of students flocked to the School to take advantage of its comprehensive curriculum, which encompasses not just the Czech language, but also Czech literature, history, geography and culture. The School quickly became the largest Czech school in the United States.
During the School’s second year in operation, enrollment grew to over 100 students at five Bay Area locations, including Palo Alto, San Francisco, Mountain View, Lafayette and Novato.
In addition to its incredible expansion, the CSC has also entered in to two exclusive partnerships. The first, with Prague’s prestigious Charles University, which entitles the School to work with the University on developing new methodologies for teaching Czech as a second language. And the second,
with the Czech Ministry of Education, which has officially recognized the School as a charter school and permitted CSC administrators to issue report cards equivalent to those distributed to students in the Czech Republic.
In addition to offering instruction to students, the School also organizes cultural, educational, and social events and activities for the local Czech and Slovak communities.
