Dear Parents,

The Shkolla Shqipe registration will open on September 1st. Classes will begin on September 18th.

Please complete and sign the 2022-2023 registration form DOWNLOAD NOW (SHQIP & ENGLISH), which asks for latest updated information regarding your child. 

Please make sure all contact numbers and emails are correct.

If the payment will be made by check, please make the check payable to: St. Nicholas Albanian Orthodox Church (Memo: Albanian School). Registration fee is $50 per semester for each child. Please have the payment ready on the registration day.

We would appreciate it if you pass the word around to other families that have children ages 4 through 17.

Please note the change on the Albanian School schedule – The children will meet in the hall at 12pm. 
After a quick snack, they will enter the classrooms. Albanian School will end at 1.30pm.

Children will be transferred to the next level according to their proficiency in Albanian (writing and reading).

As in the past, the mothers are welcomed to join in initiatives that will help the fundraisings for this school.

The faculty and I are very aware of the sacrifices that many of our families are making to offer their children an education in Albanian language and culture. We believe that there is no better investment you can make than the investment in your child’s Albanian cultural heritage.

We are looking forward to work together in cooperation on the best interests of these children.


Sincerely yours,

Lea Bitta, Interim Director of Albanian School
Thea Kristo, Assistant Director
