Does your child or grandchild attend a non-Armenian school? Perhaps you want to enrich their cultural background with Armenian language and culture education in a fun and motivating environment. Enrollment has begun for our highly successful Saturday School program in the Western region.

From the early days, the ARS established Saturday schools to pass on the Armenian language and culture to the new generation. Currently, there are 16 Saturday Schools in our region that enroll students ages 2.5 to 12 or 16, depending on the school.

ARS Saturday School students have been grateful for the opportunity to learn to read and write the language of their forefathers, while some have gone on to serve on civic and community organization positions.

Don’t let your child grow up not knowing the basics of Armenian language and culture and come back to you when he or she is an adult and say, “Why didn’t you teach me Armenian?”
