Growing up in North America, your children may face confusion or a disconnection from their roots. Arivakam was built for children to learn and experience what it means to be Tamil.


From the Tamil language, arts, history, heritage and traditions, we focus on teaching students the different aspects of our Tamil roots.


It is never too late to start! We welcome students to begin their Tamil education from any level and any age within 4-14 years old.

Well-Rounded Tamil Education

At Arivakam, learning is not just language based. We strive to ensure our students develop an understanding for the Tamil Way of Life through learning important life skills like critical thinking, teamwork, leadership, public speaking, creativity, and social responsibility. 


Our schools use the international Tamil diaspora curriculum to teach: language, history, arts and heritage to our students, along with a variety of other initiatives from: speech competitions, art competitions, Vaakai talent-showcasing program, student exhibitions, cultural celebrations, and other workshops and events.

Volunteer with the Tamil Community


It is one thing to learn Tamil. Is it another thing to experience Tamil. 


Yearly we work to host many events and activities for students, parents and teachers to enjoy. As we grow our Arivakam community, we are adding new educational, cultural and social initiatives. 


Over the past 15 years, Arivakam has built a strong relationship within not just the Tamil community but the greater North American as well. We are grateful for the support from various communities and organizations for sponsoring and partnering with us on workshops and events.
