The Bulgarian community in Washington DC established the Bulgarian Education and Cultural Center "St. Kliment Okhridski" in 2002.  The school provides education in the culture, language, history, literature and geography of Bulgaria. Through weekend classes, our center supplements education that students receive through their public and private schools. 

The Bulgarian Ministry of Education partially finances our center, accredits our school and recognizes our diplomas as officially part of the Bulgarian education system. Teachers at our school hold degrees in education from accredited Bulgarian colleges and universities that loosely translate to masters degrees in the US system. 

In 2008, we co-founded the Association of Bulgarian Schools that encompasses 200 sister schools around the world and approximately 25 sister schools in the US.
