It is my great pleasure to announce the opening of the Academy of Georgian Heritage in the Washington, DC, metro area. The Academy aspires to educate children from the Georgian diaspora and instill in them the knowledge of and respect for their rich cultural heritage.
The success of the Academy depends on the eagerness of our students, the commitment of the parents, and most importantly, on the excellence of our faculty. Our teachers are talented, dedicated, and experienced educators who create dynamic ways to engage and inspire our children in their respective areas of specialty. It is my great honor to support them in their mission.
Our school is a unique place, one which unites us through our common language, history and culture. In it you will find a deep respect for learning and a desire to pass on to our children the gift of their proud Georgian heritage.
I encourage you to come visit us in person. I would love to tell you more about our classes, introduce you to our teachers and students, and answer any questions that you might have.
As a diaspora community in an increasingly multicultural society, we believe passionately in contributing to the preservation and strengthening of our Georgian heritage through the education of new and future generations of Georgian-Americans in Georgian language, history and culture.
The Academy of Georgian Heritage was founded in 2013 to offer a supplemental Georgian language program for preschool and school-age children.
