With the love and generosity of the Avedisian and Bilezikian families, and many other generous donors, the AMAA was able to construct this state-of-the art campus to house preschool through twelfth grade. The building, is the first LEED certified building in Armenia, setting the standard for all countries in the region. Focusing on another exciting project, the AMAA has collaborated with the Armenia Tree Project (ATP) for work on the School’s green roof gardens, which will not only provide insulation and lower heating and cooling costs but will be an educational feature in itself.

In time, colleges and universities will be invited to offer courses for credit during the summer.
