The Association of Bulgarian Schools in America (ABSA) is a nonprofit organization established in 2018, when it became clear that Bulgarian community-based heritage language schools across the United States needed to connect with each other and become more visible in the official language landscape. To this respect, ABSA collaborates with the National Coalition of Community-Based Heritage Language Schools, the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL), the Seal of Biliteracy, the Global Seal of Biliteracy, many universities, and others.



There are Bulgarian Schools all over the country. We help connect you to the proper education for the language. Our goal is to make learning Bulgarian as easy as possible.



We are committed to the idea the Bulgarian Schools in the United States are able to work together to elevate Bulgarian language education. We work to ensure all students have equitable access to language learning in an environment that supports and honors students, staff and families of all backgrounds. We have an accountability plan in place to guarantee that our goals are met. We encourage members of our learning community across the country to stay engaged with our work.
