Testimonials

"I love that SSAES balances a challenging curriculum with small class sizes and attentive, nurturing teachers. The fact that my children have made close friends and receive an Armenian education is icing on the cake!"

"What I love most about SSAES is the warm, nurturing environment created by the teachers, Director, and Principal. I feel that they truly care about my daughter and her achievements. My daughter is not fluent in Armenian and I have felt that this has not been a barrier in her education; to the contrary, she has been enthusiastic about learning a new language. This stems from the thoughtful and encouraging manner in which her teachers interact and teach her. At this time, there is no other place that mirrors what SSAES can provide my daughter."

From the Principal's Desk.

  • Summer Program - As I mentioned before, this year we will offer the Summer Program for two separate age groups (Preschool) and (Kindergarten and Gr. 1). They will both be held July 5 - August 5 (5weeks). The cost is $225 per week, but after May 1, 2016 the cost will be $250 per week. Please find attached the registration form for each program. It includes the theme for each week. We will also send hard copies with N-Gr. 1 students today. If you are interested, please complete the form and return it to the school, along with the payment, so that we start making the necessary arrangements. Please inform your friends that the Summer Program is open to non-SSAES students as well.
