MISSION STATEMENT

We, at the Armenian Sisters’ Academy, believe that every child is unique and valuable, because each child comes from God and has an eternal destiny.

 

We are dedicated to the development of the total child: spiritually, intellectually, personally, emotionally and socially.

The school expands understanding of the nature of ethnicity and its place in a greater cultural context. The school, as a family complement, is a part of our community and society with its own identity as a stimulating environment, designed to cultivate the growth of the whole child in spiritual, intellectual, personal, social, physical and ethnic areas.

 

Armenian language, Armenian cultural courses and religion are included in our curriculum in addition to California standards of academic subjects.
