Following many months of hard work and preparation, Chamlian Armenian School has been granted another 6-year term of accreditation through the Accrediting Commission for Schools, Western Association of Schools and Colleges.


In its official communication, the commission congratulates the school on the “quality of instruction being offered and the commitment to school improvement.” Retiring Principal, Mr. Vazken Madenlian, is very proud of this achievement, stating that it is an “excellent recognition and affirmation of Chamlian’s many accomplishments, as well as the hard work and dedication put forth by its staff and faculty.”
