As part of BKM’s primary objective the tamil schools are heavily subsidized by funds from BKM membership and donations. This ensures that the registration fee is only $45/kid per year for BKM member kids. Majority of the registration fees goes towards maintaining the Accreditation status.
BKM family membership is only $90/year for a family of 4. BKM hosts several events with dinner that are FREE for members, such as, Pongal, Picnic, BKM Dayand other cultural events View member benefits
BKM hosts Tamil school competition and Tamil School Annual day. In addition, all the kids will receive trophies and/or medals.
In addition to the syllabus, BKM Tamil Schools offer speech sessions that are designed by the Thamizh language enthusiasts. We plan activities like storytelling, role play, games, Tamil Comic reading sessions etc., that encourages kids to build confidence in speaking the language.
Students who lack in the conversation skill are identified by the teachers and parents. Dedicated sessions are conducted for the selected students. Every location has a dedicated teacher/coach to provide speech training.
Accreditation helps to determine if an institution meets or exceeds minimum standards of quality. All BKM Tamil Schools are accredited by Cognia (formerly AdvancED).
Accreditation helps students and parents to apply for high school credit in their respective ISD.
Students from BKM Tamil Schools are motivated to author and publish articles via BKM’s Thamizh magazine “ThamizhCharal”. In addition, teachers and parents are encouraged to write stories, share experiences, poems etc., all at NO COST to members and kids.
To practice reading Tamil books other than the syllabus, BKM Tamil Schools established a lending library system in 2019. Comic Books from prominent publications and great children authors were imported from Tamil Nadu and circulated among the students. This has helped the kids to improve on their tamizh language skills significantly.
