Established on October 31st, 1987, the ICSNC Persian School began teaching children the joy of learning the Persian language, Farsi, through the efforts of a handful of individuals. Shortly after, we bagan organizing adult language classes as well. With the upcoming dedication of our new location at the Cultural Center, we look forward to a new beginning. We look forward to you joining us for another academic year to benefit from and in support of this great community resource.
