“Erebuni” Armenian School was founded in 1988 by a group of patriotic parents interested in perpetuating the Eastern dialect of the Armenian language. In 2015, we became a part of St. James Armenian Apostolic Church and renamed St. James Erebuni Armenian School, growing from 14 students close to 200.
St. James Erebuni School staff creates a fun environment to teach the kids. The Armenian language and culture are taught, not only in the classroom settings, but through music, choir, dance, poetry, games and theatre.
Chess classes are offered at school which is optional. It starts right after school ends.
“Zangakner” singing classes are optional. Children learn many traditional and modern Armenian/American songs and dances.
It’s not your typical traditional Saturday school. “Erebuni” is like a big family where kids are excited and look forward to seeing each other every week. We create learning games, new interesting methods and organize many fun events to keep the excitement going.
We believe in what we do, and we do it with devotion, dedication and love. That’s why the school continues to improve and, in turn, so does the enrollment. If you would like to know more, please come visit us, for our doors and hearts are always open.
We are currently located at St. James Armenian Apostolic Church, Watertown MA. School hours are from 10AM to 1PM every Saturday from September to June. We have programs from preschool to 8th grade!
