History of Our School

Armenian Sisters’ Academy is operated by the Armenian Sisters of the Immaculate Conception which was founded in Constantinople in 1847. The order is dedicated to the education of Armenian children worldwide. The Lexington school is one of the three schools run by the Sisters in North America. The others are in Philadelphia and Los Angeles.

The founder of the school, Sister Alphonsa Bedrosian, entered the United States in 1978 with faith, courage and an enormous vision. In 1979 she established a small educational pre-school center in Watertown. Encouraged by her success, she strove hard to expand the school. In 1982 in Lexington, MA, she found a campus, like a jewel nesting in the woods, that was the very epitome of her vision and there the Armenian Sisters’ Academy was founded. Through her diligence, the school program was expanded to include the middle school.

The school occupies two large buildings on beautifully landscaped acreage. It serves the needs of children of preschool age through the eighth grade. It is certified by the Lexington School System meeting local and state standards for education.

The Armenian Sisters’ Academy follows the curriculum guidelines from the Massachusetts Department of Education. The school has also been accepted as a candidate for Accreditation by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) and is in the process of preparing for Accreditation by this prestigious association.  The school’s curriculum also includes Armenian Language, History and Culture to enrich the educational experience of its Armenian and non-Armenian students.


The school is committed to ensure that students leave the Armenian Sisters’ Academy as ethical young men and women, who possess the integrity to become responsible citizens, with deep passion for learning.


Our graduates continue into High school and college, with a strong education, a sense of self, and respect towards their families and others. We are successful, because we have awakened each individual student’s gifts and talents, and motivated them to continue to learn and become responsible, and committed young adults.


Throughout the year, we receive commendations from private and public high schools where our students have journeyed.  The commendations endorse that our students are excelling in their studies, and the individual student’s attitude towards learning is how this accomplishment is made.
