LEXINGTON, Mass. — After 30 years of continuously serving the children of Greater Boston and now with the possible threat of closing well behind them, the Armenian Sisters’ Academy (ASA) is planning for the future with renewed dedication to their goal.
The Lexington-based Armenian Catholic school, founded in 1982 by Sister Alphonsa Bedrosian of the Sisters of the Immaculate Conception, has reaffirmed its school mission and plans to expand the student body in the upcoming academic school years.
When the sisters considered closing the school, a coalition of alumni families and parents, led by the school’s advisory board, teamed together to keep the school open.
Advisory Board Chairperson Katrina Menzigian shared, “We wanted to show the sisters that the school was in demand in the Boston community and that the dedication to Armenian education still existed.”
