Written and spoken language, culture and community unite people and transform their lives. The Bulgarian School in Los Angeles  harmonizes and unifies the Bulgarian culture and American values. The school strives to keep the bonds with Bulgarian traditions and language with American lifestyle and multiculturalism.

The school embraced diversity to enrich children and adults by giving them opportunities to learn, experience and communicate (reading, writing and verbally) in English and Bulgarian. Students are exposed to both cultures to enhance their development into bright, engaged, capable, and productive citizens. We strive to preserve the Bulgarian language and culture by teaching students valuable skills and by promoting diversity and interactions between different generations, socioeconomic groups and cultures.

The core objective of the school is teaching written and spoken Bulgarian language, literature, history and geography, as well as continuing Bulgarian traditions. Students with prior experience and knowledge of Bulgarian will be exposed to new knowledge and communicate with younger learners, peers and teachers. Frequent festivals and celebrations of Bulgarian culture, science, sports etc. will also provide communication, social and educational forums.

As of  November 28, 2011, the Bulgarian School in Los Angeles is part of the Bulgarian-American Cultural Educational Foundation (BACEF) and is officially organized under Internal Revenue Code section 501(c)(3).
