America Nepal Helping Society is positively running a not-for-profit Academy since February 2016, entitled ‘ANHS Academy’. The Academy, which is run in Manassas (Virginia), provides classes on learning how to read & write Nepali language, and about the Nepali culture. The class schedule usually is on every Sunday from 10 AM to 12 PM, and each class is scheduled for 45 minutes. Following each class, usually there is the presentation about Nepalese festivals and culture along with offering snacks and refreshments to the students.
The Academy is committed to provide quality education, with a goal of promoting as well as preserving Nepalese culture and heritage among the Nepalese community residing over the United States of America.
4 School curriculum includes the instructions regarding reading, writing, and verbal communication in Nepali language, and also the cultural education for the kids who are -13 years old. We believe that improving the knowledge and understanding of the Nepali language and culture among new generation certainly helps to keep our customs and traditions alive in the USA.

Why attend the Nepali School?
As Nepali expatriates in America, many of us have recognized a need for our children to connect to their roots and culture. In the Nepali School, we focus on quality education that will instruct our children a greater knowledge and appreciation of their cultural heritage and language.
What is the school schedule?
Classes will be scheduled for 45 minutes. Following each class, there will be presentation about Nepalese festivals and culture; snacks and refreshments are provided.
What is the nature of the course and the curriculum?
Our main goal is teaching the kids to read and write the Nepali language. However, we will have a balanced mix of lectures, discussions, short assignments, and fun activities like traditional games, learning rhymes, etc. In the future, depending on demand and availability of volunteer teachers, we will expand our curriculum to traditional Nepali cooking, Nepali musical instruments, etc.
What type of classes do you have?
In Nepali School, we teach reading and writing. There will be presentations by the students to cover Nepali festivals etc. which will also broaden their cultural view of Nepal.
Will snacks and refreshments be provided to the kids?
We would definitely like to provide refreshments. But please note that our minimum fee will not cover this cost. However, since this is a community effort, we look for the compassionate parents volunteering each week for snacks-duty.
Is there a place for parents to stay while the classes are in session?
During the course of the session, parents can remain within the facility; however we will not have parents in the study area unless they are volunteering with the teaching. This is to cut back on the distraction to the children.
