The Armenian Community School located in Fresno, California strives to provide for its students an environment in which healthy moral, ethical, and spiritual values can be instilled and nurtured. The students are exposed to a bi-lingual curriculum of the highest quality that will help them become model American citizens with an understanding and appreciation of their Armenian heritage.

The Armenian Community School endeavors to enhance the educational opportunities available to its students. To achieve this, students receive a great deal of individual attention. ACS teachers are always on the lookout for ways in which to cultivate the seeds of education, the love of learning, and Christian values all within an Armenian environment.

Approximately 105 children attend ACSF. The majority of children are American-Armenian, and other nationalities comprise rest of the student body. Students live in the greater Fresno metropolitan living area. While every child is special and unique there are a few threads of consistency from student to student.

First and foremost a child who attends ACSF is a child whose parents believe academic achievement is paramount. The parent's of ACSF know the value of a classroom with 20 students or less. Parent's who choose ACSF desire for their child to learn and grow in a safe, community environment.

Some children who have had difficulties in the public school system have flourished at ACSF. Children who have been over-achievers in the public school system are now challenged and excelling to their fullest potential.

Parent's who chose ACSF understand that academic achievement translates into opportunities and advancement as an adult. ACSF is the first step on your child's path to academic success and individual excellence.
