Bezjian Building at Merdinian School Opens Its Doors

The newly constructed Bezjian Family Building at the C & E Merdinian Armenian Evangelical School in Sherman Oaks, California opened its doors to students for the first time on August 18, 2016.  This beautiful 6,840 sq. ft. modern building offers state-of-the-art facilities to the School’s students.  It encompasses five classrooms, a library, science lab, art room and an office for the athletic coach.  Children and teachers alike were very excited to see their new, tastefully decorated classrooms.  Each classroom is in the process of being equipped with the latest in technology to enhance the students’ learning experience.

Founded in 1982 and located in Sherman Oaks, CA, C & E Merdinian Armenian Evangelical School is the first Armenian Evangelical educational institution in the United States.  Over the past thirty-four years, the dream of a few visionary Armenian Evangelicals has grown into a preschool through eighth grade middle school.

The Merdinian School believes that the integration of the educational efforts of the home, the church, and the school is basic to the development of each child’s fullest potential.  To learn more about the School visit their website at
