Early Days

Austin Tamil Sangam has been successfully conducting Tamil school since 2013 in the Greater Austin area. Austin Tamil School currently teaches Tamil to over 100 kids with the help of about 40 volunteers.

Austin Tamizh Sangam started a Tamil School pilot program around the auspicious Pongal festival of 2013. The pilot was intended to study the options available for teaching Tamil and to identify the best practices to teach Tamil to the kids of Tamil community in Austin, TX. The inauguration event was presided over by notable Tamil writer and TX resident, Dr. Singara Vadivel.

Our Mission

The mission of Austin Tamil School is to provide a fun and interactive learning experience to the kids of Tamil community in Austin to sufficiently learn the Tamil language to be able to practically understand, speak, read, and write Tamil.

The vision of Austin Tamil School is “To be a leader in providing an exemplary learning environment for the Tamil language with the commitment to continuous improvement”.

Austin Tamil School is supporting a community of about 2500 Tamil speaking families in the Greater Austin area by providing opportunities to learn Tamil and to volunteer. The Tamil speaking community in Austin, TX is growing at a rapid pace and we want these children to have the opportunity to learn the language that their parents and family spoke at home and love eternally. Being multilingual has several advantages that extend beyond linguistic knowledge. It has substantial cognitive, social, personal, academic, economic, and professional benefits that have been well documented. We believe that this effort will go a long way in stimulating children’s brains and achieving the benefits listed above.
