Vahan & Anoush Chamlian Armenian School

Principal's Message

On behalf of the entire faculty and staff, I would like to welcome you to St. Mary’s Vahan and Anoush Chamlian Armenian School. It is my distinct privilege to serve as the Principal of Chamlian, which has been a vital asset in the work of preparing future leaders and innovators for over four decades.

The school’s outstanding reputation has allowed it to grow and thrive as an important staple within our community at large. Enhancement and growth of student problem solving, creative thinking, and decision making skills continues to strengthen our base as we send out future leaders who are prepared to become productive citizens in their local and global communities. Our character development program guides students in developing self esteem, Christian morals and values, and academic excellence. A deep respect for their rich Armenian heritage and the cultivation of our Armenian language also ensures that students will achieve competence in written and oral Armenian and Armenian History.

Having attended Chamlian as a student during my youth, it is with pride that I direct my efforts in up-keeping the safety as well as nurturing environment that will foster the growth of the most precious members of society: our children. Their time here at Chamlian and upbringing is of great importance to me because the only way to see into the future is through the eyes of those that will create it. I invite all prospective parents, students, and community members to learn more about our unique and high caliber school.

My door is always open. I look forward to meeting you and your children.


Dr. Talin P. Kargodorian
