2017 School Description 


In addition to learning the Armenian language, children learn Armenian religion lessons, songs, literature, participate in assemblies which commemorate major holidays, learn about Armenian culture, and make friends that last a lifetime. The academic year culminates in a year-end Hantes and graduation ceremony, which showcases all that the students have learned throughout the year.

Time and Place

Classes convene on Sundays and begin at 9:30 AM with a special service for children each week in the sanctuary. The school ends at 1:00 PM. No lunch is served but children are encouraged to bring snacks to eat in class at designated times. School runs from September to June.
